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

Maya 2011 not saving scenes/crashes

Maya 2011 not saving scenes/crashes

This started yesterday, I opened Maya 2011 and started to work - I went to save scene and Maya seemed to freeze.

I bkup my prefs to a different location - and deleted prefs,
still - the same behavior. I have to force logout each time it freezes - I have Maya 2013 and the same behavior started yesterday.

I googled it and could only find info saying delete prefs.

I should have come here in the first place, because I always get solutions.

Fixed it - after two days trying to solve this. I just by chance tripped over the answer.

If this helps anyone, this is what I found out.

When I tried to save scene, or even a render - seemed Maya crashed. Turns out it did not.
I noticed the cursor would move to the bottom left of my main display.

So I started Maya again, went to save scene as...
Maya freezes? Again?

I used Win7 command (win key, shift, arrow right.)

This forced my main window/scene/app - etc. to display on my 2nd monitor -
Also using Win trick the save box appeared on the 2nd monitor.

Hope this helps at least one person
