How do you guys Queue your renders out of Maya? I used to use Smedge but it can't seem to render Mental Ray files,
Is there a plugin or nice piece of software that you use to create a render Queue?
I would throw a message up on the smedge message forums. Robin is usually pretty good about responding on these types of issues. It could be that smedge 2 is older than maya 7, so it doesn't feed the command properly. Have you looked into smedge 3 yet?
I have to say I've never had trouble with smedge rendering mr4maya shots. As an alternative I understand that muster is very good, though I've never used it.
