Hi fahr, Did you check out Maya 2014 extension for the above issue? is it still present?

It seems I'm not able to reproduce it any more. I simply created a particle emitter and a cube, then create instancer and render through MentalRay. I can see cubes in render view.
Is it same as your case?

I know that for $600/yr it's a lot to ask of the vendor that files be named logically and that the vendor provide a description of what the files are.

By process of elimination, it appears the the Windoze version of the 2014 Extension is named:
Autodesk Maya 2014 dlm 001 002.sfx (exe - 1844575Kb)
and that there is a related file named:
Autodesk Maya 2014 dlm 002 002.sfx (exe - 330635Kb)

Could someone please confirm that these are the Win versions and tell me what the 2nd file is for?
If animation couldn't change the world, it wouldn't be such a Micky-Mouse place.

I can't remember where I read this. I think it is in the email they send out.

But in any case, you download both files and they self extract - if memory severs. You only have to run one of them and it gets the additional data from the other. Mine installed on Windows.

I could swear there were instructions someplace but I can not find it now.
