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

Fatal Error

I've encountered this error while trying to render a scene:
Code:
// Error: *Fatal* (mental ray) : mental ray encountered a fatal error. _
The system may have become unstable. Please save the scene and exit Maya. //
I've restarted the computer and tried it again but the same happens.
I'm using Maya 8.5

Any ideas?

When in doubt, delete history and freeze transformations.

I think I've found the problem - I had four ramp textures attached to the same 'place2dtexture' utility. I wanted to see if it was possible and Maya software render didn't seem to have any problems with it.

OK, there's now a purpose for this word in there.
The error is back again and this time there's nothing special about my shader networking...
