Maya crashes when using optimized texture

Hi all,
I am working on a scene which needs a few large textures, so I follow the instruction here: link to convert them into .map files.
But every time I render the scene, Maya crashes. I would be really appreciate if someone can help me out here...or if anybody can offer a workaround, that would be awesome as well.

Since I discovered .exr tiled textures I don't use .map anymore. They seem faster and more stable in maya.

While I like .exr files better, the .map files work just fine for me and always have. There's something else going on with your scene, possibly?

At my studio, Maya would crash on about 2 or 3 workstations when I try to render with .tx textures (including my own workstation). The rest can render just fine.

To this day I still haven't figured out what cause it. Even formatting and reinstall windows wouldn't fix it.

Hi there, unfortunately this is a defect in Maya 2014. The workaround currently would be to use the original 'un-optimized textures' if possible.

Hope it helps,
Ryan

I think it has something to do with my textures because once I deleted most of my textures and redid the optimized texture command. I could render the scene just fine
