i have a problem during batch rendering. whenever i output a bitmap sequence or an avi file from maya, i'm able to render out the first few frames of the scene but later on, when i open up the script editor and check the render status, i find that all the next frames are being processed at 0% complete. this goes on until the last frame, and, as expected, the avi file comes out corrupted or the 0% completed bitmaps are corrupted.
could anyone please explain what the problem could be? it really hampers my progress as sometimes i'd have a model all rigged and textured only to find out i can't batch render because of a problem like this. any suggestions?
