I'm currently using maya 6.5 on tiger. I've noiced some strange function loss in the application. Most important I've lost the ability to Batch Render. single frame renders and playblasts all work as normal. Software, hardware, metal ray and vector multi frame batch renders all have the same trouble. The batch application executes but does not use any system resources. It sits in the process tree and does nothing/very little. I've tested with even a simple scene to see if it was perfromance issue, but that had the same results. I've attempted to contact alias (now autodesk) but they have no clue. My question is has anyone else experienced this problem? If so is there a solution?
The second loss is the dxf/dwg translator plug-in has gone missing. It's very strange. I'm looking for a free 3d translator app to bypass this but that will be a trick in itself.
