mental ray rendering issue
« on: February 10, 2014, 10:05:24 PM »
Hi Carlos, I'm having trouble with this file: ftp://ftp2.dot.state.mn.us/pub/outbound/MetroWatersEdge/Visualization/Kai/forest/

When I render a frame, mental ray freezes at 100% without finishing. If I delete the forest objects, mental ray will finish rendering no problem. Can you verify this on your end? What do you think is causing this?

Thanks,
Kai

Sorry, i cannot reproduce the problem here (Max 2014, FP 4.1.5). What Max version do you use ?

Strange that you cannot reproduce it. I'm using max 2014 with latest updates. Anyway I was able to fix the error. I remembered a piece of advice you gave me one time about merging scenes with forest objects. I created a new scene and a new forest object. I then deleted the forest object and merged all the geometry from the file with the rendering error except for the forest templates. Now it is fixed.

I don't understand why the error only happens on my system but I won't dwell on it. Thanks for taking a look at it!

Regards,
Kai
