Hello there,
I'm not sure how you've managed to get that result as i've used the batch renderer countless times, if anything I found it to be faster, assuming you've closed down maya and started the batch from the command prompt?
As far as I know the renderer is the same either way you use it, it's just a different way of starting it up.
Could be wrong though :/
