I've got a scene in Maya 6.0.1 that refuses to batch render. It's a pretty simple scene, consisting of a few low poly models (with the "use background" shader applied) and a 3d fluid fire effect. When I render a current frame, that works fine and fast... less than 5 seconds. When I try to batch it, it never gets started up. I get the following:
// Result: Rendering with Maya Software… //
// Result: Percentage of rendering done: 0 (starting) //
// Result: Percentage of rendering done: 0 (doing frame 1849) //
…and it just sits there, staring at me.
Does anyone know what could be wrong? I’ve cached the fluid, just to be safe, and it still doesn’t work. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
