Command line rendering only in vector

Hi i am rendering from the command line on a MAC, i am rendering only ambient occlusion with the mental ray preset on a render layer.

i have a few scenes, the first one render no problemlike this:

Render -cam Plano8b -im plano8 -s 800 -e 1275 -rd (path)plano8b (Path)filename.mb

the probem comes with the next scene, its all setup the same but only renders vector render...

any clues? thank you.

specify the mental ray renderer with render -r mr

Hey Dave thanks for answering, i tried that but not working still rendering vectors only...very weird the scene before it is setup the same and works perfectly...think im gonna try importing scene 2 to scene 1 see what happens..

by the way i see mr initializing in the command line fine everything is ok i only get empty uv map1 errors.

any sugestions are apreciated

update: i imported scene2 into scene1 and now its working, without -r mr, it is strange, because just did a test scene only a moving cube with occlusion preset and i got vectors again in the command line render even with -r mr...

that's a weird one. I've never seen a bug like that.
