View Full Version : Texture Problem

12 December 2006, 12:24 AM
I have a really urgent problem with maya texture. I'm rendering a small scene with the most of the texture created with Maya shaders, i have a lot of paint effects, and its rendering in maya sofware. when i render it in render visor, the scene is complete, but when i do the Bacth only appeare the paint effects. I need to finish this work, because i need to present it in a week. i'm totally freaked out, need some help. this has never happen.

Sorry for may english

You aren't batch rendering with Mental Ray or Maya Hardware are you? Neither will support PaintFX without first converting to polygons.

the problem is that i need to make a video of 720 x 480, and a image in 2k, and for that i need them not to be polys

You cannot render PaintFX in mental ray unless you convert to polygons.

I'm rendering with maya sofware. the thing is that when i render the current frame with the "preview" it looks OK, but as need the paint effects to be animated, I need to batch render (still using maya software) and then it is when all my textures go black (missing). I still have the geometry, including displacements, but the color is gone... what could the problem be?

could it be that you are batch rendering with the wrong camera?
make sure the camera that you want to use has renderable checked.

itīs not the camara. two days ago, I look in the first file I created, and has the same problem.

Render a composite of your scene, one sequence without pfx and the other with pfx only. You'll composite them together afterwards.

Do a search for Render scenes with Paint Effects strokes in the help search, there is a nice tutorial there (Render_scenes_with_Paint_Effects_strokes.htm).

Just in case, check if you didn't activate "Only render strokes" in "Paint effects rendering options" (render settings).

Thanks for all the help. i just render it, rendering in layers. at the end, i lost the shadows of the grass, i will look for a way to take out the attention of that detail.
