I have set up an animated camera in maya and am wanting to render with vue. This is due to mental ray struggling, as I am able to render at 1 min a frame on draft settings but the moment I start increasing anything in order to get what I require the times jump to 45 mins. I am looking at 5 mins a frame for 720p with vue's render with high settings but need to be able to import my camera into vue. The camera is set up on a curve using locators and so vue may not be able to read this. If it can this would solve my problem as I could render what I need with vue. If someone could let me know how I go about this it would be great.

Ok I managed to bake the animation to my camera and used the vuesynch plugin. Only problem is when I import the synchronization data and attach it to my camera in vue the camera has moved miles from where it should be located. I reduced the scale to 1 but it is not where it should be. I am starting to think I may be best off simply using vue for still frames.

If anyone could advise, also it would be good to know any recommendations regarding other software for animating landscapes.
