that makes render show up fine.
here's a simple caustics test, rendered in Maya:
and the same image rendered in the command line:
and the render exits with the following error:
Error: Scene /Users/beige/Documents/maya/projects/default/scenes/caustictest4.mb failed to render.
MSG 0.0 info : wallclock 0:03:36.24 total
MSG 0.0 info : CPU user 0:05:11.43 total
MSG 0.0 info : allocated 2 MB, max resident 25 MB, RSS 0 MB
// Maya exited with status 210
I just ran memtest and all is fine.
the command was as follows:
render -r mr -cam persp -rgb 1 -alpha 1 -fnc 3 -s 1 -e 1 -percentRes 100 -of tif -im "caustic4_persp_g5solo" -rd "/Users/beige/Desktop/renders/" /Users/beige/Documents/maya/projects/default/scenes/caustictest4.mb
that's running only on the local machine that has 4.5 GB of RAM on a dual G5. even weirder, I tried to increase the memory for the render (-mm 1500) and got this:
Invalid flag: -mm.
and from the help: "-mm int Renderer maximum memory use (in Megabytes)"
does that not apply to mental ray?
any ideas what the hell is going on? i never had these issues with Maya 7. This is a fresh install of OS X 10.4.8
