View Full Version : Q: Batch render and Progress Messages in mentalRay?

12 December 2006, 03:06 PM
Is there any way to be able to see Progress Messages in Output Window while Batch Rendering in mentalRay? Or something similar like progress?

The information you would get in the output window is written to the
mayaRenderLog.txt located in your user maya directory.

To follow the batch render progress you can type in the file path in your browser (be aware that this file might be very large and if so should be cleared for easy use).

Hit F5 to refresh and see the current progress.

Thanks, just the thing I was looking for (maybe not the most convenient way, but for long renders it does the trick)

Start the batch render entirely from the command prompt. And dont forget to set the export verbosity to at least 'Progress Messages'.

Do a search on 'command line' in the maya docs for further info.
