Introduction to Maya - Rendering in Arnold
This course will look at the fundamentals of rendering in Arnold. We'll go through the different light types available, cameras, shaders, Arnold's render settings and finally how to split an image into render passes (AOV's), before we then reassemble it i

Quick question, Maya PLE to Maya

1. I have Maya PLE but plan to switch to the real Maya sometime in the future. Are the files from Maya PLE totally different than those in the regular Maya?

I dont want to make a bunch of Models in PLE and then have them not work in the real Maya, so I was curious if anyone knows? Any help would be great!!

Also...
2. Has anyone heard anything about Maya 7?

3. I had a problem batch rendering... when I try to batch render it says, "Cannot find an available port". Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thanks so much guys!!!!

I knew I could come here and ask these difficult questions because there are a lot of knowledgable Maya users here

Maya and PLE use two completely different formats. Maybe try to convert your PLE into .X or something, and then try to open that into maya.

PLE is closed. You can't import or export any file formats other than .mp. If they allowed .x, then you'd be able to use PLE (free) in a production pipeline, and that's not good for Maya's bottom line.
