when i start batchrender in maya2009(win64-bit), the renderer switches from maxwell to mayasoftware and starts to render!

can somebody confirm that strange behavior?

this was no problem using maya2008(win64-bit)...

thx for feedback!

that's not funny, 100's of frames are not to be done manually

1. export-mxs with animation checked in maya
2. start maxwell-render-app
3. load first mxs
4. fill-in desired animation-range
5. click render!

the worst case is that you need an extra HD, because of the huge amount of diskspace...

I did it but studio loads only the first MXS, I couldn't find how to tell it that there are others ... ?

hi choo-chee,

do not use studio for rendering!
open maxell-render app instead...choose the lower left corner you will find the inputfield FRAMES

mxcl.exe -d

opens a blank maxwell-render window...

does it work?

how do you input frame numbers? I tried typing "1-50" yet it appears that MR changes the numbering of my it is:

in maya renderglobals under COMMON-tab choose name.#.ext and set framepadding to 4

so your files should be named:


now it should work!?!
