I'm running into this problem in Maya 7 and mental ray, and I'm at a loss - I'll try to render a preview, and everything looks like it should, until it finishes. When the render is done, it turns completely black. The only error I get is about a shape node having an empty UV set, or no material assigned.
Sometimes it's a hidden shape, or even a non-renderable one... even if I do assign a shader, I'll just get another error about something else. :banghead:
Has anyone else ever run into this?
I'm hoping to have this image done in time for Christmas, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
