When trying to batch render using software mode, Maya renders the first frame of the batch then says that it has completed the batch when it hasn't.
I've gone back to older files and tried rendering them, they work fine. It just seems to be new files. There is nothing complicated in the scene, in fact all I'm trying to render at the moment is simple poly balloon model with a simple phong shader.
Not sure what I've done wrong. I've tried rendering with the depth channel and alpha channels disabled and at different software render settings with no luck. I've also tried rendering from windows, again no luck. Help!
If anyone could help out that would be great!

If I understand you right, than you want to render a little movie and you only get the first frame? If so, have a look in the render settings. Be sure that you have selected in frame/animation.ext something without (single frame).
Than look at start and end frame. There you should type in the the start frame and the end frame
Maybe you just forgot to set these settings. If not I don't have any idea what the problem could be.

I just noticed pretty much the same problem the other day. If I do a hardware render it's fine. If I do software however it falls over after between 6 and 10 frames. Tried reading the mayaRenderlog.txt file and it says: "Error: error reading scan line:"
I'm loath to do it, but I guess it's time to start nuking things in the prefs directory. Expect a response if I suss it.
