i click batch render and nothing i get this

/ Result: Saving temporary file: /Users/Mark/Documents/maya/projects/concept_car/images/concept_car.ambient_occlus__199.mb //
// Result: Rendering with mental ray... //
// Result: Percentage of rendering done: 0 (/Users/Mark/Documents/maya/projects/concept_car/images/concept_car.ambient_occlus1.tif) //

and thats it. i can sit around forever and sill thats all that renders for my 300 frames.

whats wrong?

it could be any number of things. The usual culprits with mental ray are:

antialiasing settings
final gather/GI count and depth
raytrace depth
lower all those and it will probably go a lot faster

but you seem to be doing AO - set the AO samples and search distance lower and it will speed up.
