View Full Version : no file extension with render passes

08 August 2009, 08:12 AM
This is probably an easy one but I just can't figure out why maya doesn't attach any extensions to the output files when rendering passes in mental ray. AE requires the files to have an extension and I don't feel like manually adding them. I'd appreciate any help:)
Nevermind, I'm retarded. I've set the naming convention to name (Single Frame)...

yep just take a note you can also assign custom file extension to your files in File Output settings under the name in Render settings dialog...

sometime its useful (for ie there was a bug in maya 2008 that hdri has wrong extension .map instead of hdr... simple fix by custom extension
