View Full Version : Mental Ray Fatal error

How do I figure out what the fatal error is? All it says is, "fatal error, you machine is now unstable, save and restart Maya."

Are you using any geo shader? Maybe something related to framebuffers?
This has only happened here when using ar_GeoInst (Geoshader for instances) and the name of the object to intance is wrong.

Thanks for the respnose eddgarpv. I don't have any geoshaders in the scene. I narrowed the issue to three objects that have transparent lambert shaders applied to them. If I delete them, the scENe renders OK. I've decide to use render layers to solve the problem.
