hi. i'm new to maya. i'm using mental ray and am having a little issue. when i render, it renders two passes; a pre, rough pass and then the final one. how can i make it do only one?

please help.

thanks,

luma

Thats is most likely the final gather preview render. Don't worry about it because it only saves the second render, but it has to do the pre-render regardless if you want to see it or not.

hey. you're right. i just figured it out. i unchecked preview tiles in the fg tab and it went away. thanks.

:thumbsup:

peace, luma
