ok. somehow i find out i use this mel command and it work ((convertLightmap -mi -f b.mi -bo "textureBakeSet1" lambert2SG polySurface1)) but i find out that light mapping with MRstand alone only work on a master machine and it means it dont work over a renderfarm. am i right?

Oh. thats greate.exactly what i wants. thanks a lot Puppet| .is it work on maya 7? and is it work on a renderfarm?

Yes, it's should work with maya 7 and renderfarm (with alfred)
But one notice...
Maya version 6.5, 7.0 and 7.01 have small bug :) command convertLightmap don't export to mi file all texture pathes. As result script works fine only if your scene without textures, for example for occlusion baking.
I had report about this bug to Alias and they said that will fix it in future versions.

if it just a texture link adress its simple to fix it on a mi file. or its a something else?

I cant work with it. could you explain it more. there is no tutorial about it.and if it really dont work with texture files, it couldnt help me.

It will work only if you put all your textures near the mi file or manually edit your mi file and add correct pathes.
If you have no shaders_p installed you should disable "Auto Create Shader" checkbox.
Other things should works very simple.
Just assign Texture Bake sets to your objects and press Bake.

Thanks. i also saw your website. you have a very good tutorials. why dont you translate them to english?

03 March 2006, 08:26 AM
I have no time to translate it. My english is very and it's one more problem :)
Some of these tutorial sufficiently old, for example for Maya 5.0 and etc.
I have only one tutorial on english now :)
