Hi there...

I had the same problem... instead of using "render.exe scene.mb" you have to use "mayarender_with_mr -file scene.mb".

The only problem I am having is that I dont know how to use the useuall flags en switches like "-s -e -fields -pal""etc.

Sounds like both of you could use an upgrade to 6.0 if you don't have it already. In 5 render.exe only supports the Maya SW renderer, and the mayarender_with_mr.exe doesn't have any useful options.

In Maya 6.0 the render command has the new -r flag to select which renderer you want to use.

thanks so much dalaran and mattwood, i could solve the problem,

it was stupid of me to click on the shortcut icon of batch render, by that it used to render using maya software render. but when i went to render/batch render it did work,

thanks so much of u to reply for the post

thank you

take care
