View Full Version : Mental ray never renders

07 July 2011, 10:43 AM
hi guys, I get this error whenever i need to render in mental ray:

"Error: (Mayatomr) : unexpected internal exception during scene rendering, please report"

This happens even when i have absolutely nothing in my scene!

Maya 2011 works fine, but not 2012

I have increased my verbosity, but it looks fine except for:
"registry entry {_mi_reg_fbvirtual} not found"

-which i have no idea what it means.

please help! the deadlines are looming!

2012 has been somewhat of a headache.

After opening the render settings, select the miDefaultOptions (you can do that in the quick select by typing: miD* )

In the mentalrayGlobals tab, look under the Extra Attributes, change the Frame Buffer Mode and try again. But it's possible that won't work and you might need a reinstallation. Install the hotfixes too.

The virtual framebuffer is where it stores the image while it renders. Changing the mode might help but it's a long shot.
