View Full Version : Mental ray not saving my Photon maps. what's going on?

07 July 2010, 03:35 PM
so I am trying to save a photon map but I can't seem to figure out how. I specify the directory manually, I set the project directory but with no avail. It doesn't even display the map visualizer. I first render with rewrite photon map on, then second time I uncheck.
any idea why I can't save any pmap?

this is the error mental ray is giving me:

RCGI 0.3 error 361036: C:\Pmap: cannot save photon map: Access is denied.

weird, I am logged in as Administrator in this machine..
