Posible playblast problem solution.
I noticed that I wasnt alone with my playblast problems so I figured I would post my solution. There is a regristry problem in Maya 6. that will not allow you to R-clik and render from the icon in your scene folder. With help from The IT guy at my school I have fixed the regristry problem and as a result it seams to have fixed the playblast problem as well. Following is a copy of the email he sent me. You will have to make some changes to your regristry but it is actully pretty simple.
First Go to start/run then type in regedit. This should bring up your regristry and the rest is simple.
you would see a value like:
C:\Program Files\Alias\Maya6.0\bin\render.exe %1
you need to change that to
"C:\Program Files\Alias\Maya6.0\bin\render.exe" "%1"
you'll want to make the same change to
to get ascii files to work.
Don't forget to restart your computer. I am no techy but I think this should fix the problem. Good luck!
