Problem 1: I set a batch render to run, and it completes immediately. In the render log, it says that 'The renderer mental ray is not registered'. Rendering a single frame in the render view works fine, so Maya knows that mental ray is there.
Problem 2: On a different computer, I've tried rendering a different shot using batch render. It renders the first frame fine, but then just hangs on the second frame for ages, and then gives the out of memory error. I've limited mental ray to 512meg in the mentalray default options, and also in the batch render dialog box. The same happens if I try to render from the command line.
I'm in urgent need of a solution to this, so if anybody can help, I'd be very grateful!
