View Full Version : start render.bat file with MEL and tun in the background

04 April 2009, 08:31 PM
Hey all,

I have a render.bat file that I want to execute with MEL in the background on OS X. I can open a terminal and launch it that way but I would like to be able to execute it by hitting a button in a MEL window in maya.

I have looked at the system and exec commands but neither seems to complete the command. It just runs it and kills it right away. I have seen documentation about how to do it with Windows and Linux but no OSX?

Any thoughts?
