I'm trying to batch render a 168 frame animation using maya software renderer. I have left it for over an hour, several times and still it shows no progress. This is the message in the script editor from when I start till over an hour later every time.....
In the Global Render Settings ensure you set the settings to anything that is not marked with (Single Frame), than set your start and end frame
Oncve thats done go to the Render Menu and choose render > batch render Options. Tick all processors, if ur using a daul or quad processor and leave it.
It can take a little time for it to start kicking off and once it starts it will shoot through. This all depends on your PC and its hardware capabilities.
Best to post what you are doing and we can advice if your going wrong from there. I normally start a render and then go watch a movie...
