Friend of mine has a problem with mental ray in maya8. He created a scene in maya 7. It's nothing complicated, just polygons, one material, no warrnings whatsoever. Mental ray renders it fine in maya 7, however, when the scene is borught over to maya 8 mental ray doesn't want to render it anymore. It gives this error:
// Error: (Mayatomr) : unexpected internal exception during scene rendering, please report //
// Error: (Mayatomr) : unexpected internal exception during scene cleanup, please report //
// Info (Mayatomr): Aborted //
Very weird thing is that after loading the scene I can even create new one, put a simple box in the middle and mental ray won't work anymore. To make mental ray wortking again I have to restart maya.
Any help would be strongly appreciated.
