View Full Version : maya2008 framebuffer attribute

01 January 2008, 02:14 AM

Just creating a small script to automatically set up custom framebuffers for maya2008.
But cant seem to find the name of the "Use User Buffer" attribute on the mentalrayOutputPass? Should be a boolean representing on/off. Anyone know the name
of it?

If i remember the "Use User Buffer" attribute is dependant and automatically activated with a connection in "User Buffer" scroll list (I was stuck too when I did my Framebuffers Manager :) ).

Try this to get it checked and u should be ok :)

connectAttr -force ("Your Current MentalRay User Buffer" + "_mentalrayUserBuffer.message") ("Your Current MentalRay Outpout Pass"+ "_mentalrayOutputPass.dataType");

Edit : Oh and if u wana desactivate outpout of the buffer just check/uncheck the "File Mode" checkbox
