PHEN 0.5 232 MB fatal 051109: runtime exception 0xc0000005: access violation


#1

I’m trying to render an animation of a tree growing (it’s part of a logo).
I get to frame 247 of 600 and I get all this come up…

PHEN 0.5 232 MB fatal 051109: runtime exception 0xc0000005: access violation
PHEN 0.5 232 MB fatal 051109: runtime exception 0xc0000005: access violation
MSG 0.0 219 MB error: A Fatal error occured while rendering with NVIDIA mental ray.

This render will abort. NVIDIA mental ray is now in an unstable state and cannot be used any more for this session.

To render again with NVIDIA mental ray, please restart 3ds Max.

The error is :
PHEN 0.5 232 MB fatal 051109: runtime exception 0xc0000005: access violation

I’ve restarted max 3 times. I’ve deleted the FG map. I’ve got 16 Gb memory, 4Gb Graphics card, loads of HD space, so I’m totally stumped.
PLEASE HELP ME!

I’ll think you’ll get a higher chance of getting helped if you contact nvidia about this…

I looked up more of those having a similar problem.
All I did was adjust this part, which I found and ta-dah! it’s up and running again.
