Hello, does Vray for Maya has the problem with dead lightLinkers in a scene like mental ray? I found that thread http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=181747 but is it a Maya or mental ray issue?

cheers

Does maya still have that problem? It's been a long while since I heard anybody mention it, and that thread is from 2004.

David no probs anymore here... If the "Export Light Linker" option located under the Render Settings panel Options > Translation > Customization tab, is disabled of course...!:wavey:

Ciao.

ok, we still use Maya 2009 :) and the problem is still present

string $allLightLinker[] = `listConnections -plugs 1 -c 1 lightLinker1`;
print (size($allLightLinker));

just to count how many light linkers are in a scene. When import or export shaders sometime we have 20.000 in a scene and this is just too much hehe

but when it is solve in newer versions of Maya it is ok :) thx
