batch render takes forever to start
on Aug 10, 2007 at 7:17:11 pm

Hello,

I have a scene that when I set a render batch it takes a very long time to start the first frame, then it's fine the rest of the frames. However, when I render individual frames in the render window, I don't have that problem.

Could you please tell me what type of problem I may have?

Thanks a lot,
Hopkins

I'm not sure the problem is yours, per se. I'm no expert with the engine but I think a culprit may be external files it has to load - texture files, movie files (especially very large or very compressed movie files), etc.

Is it just on a particular project it does this or any project? About how long is it taking?

Thanks for replying.

This is only on a particular scene. It takes 35 minutes to start rendering and to save the file!

Trying to determine the problem, I found out in the maya ascii version lots of UNKNOWN_REF_NODES that I can't get rid of with Optimize Scene and Delete History. I see the nodes in the Relationship Edtor > Set Editing. They have different icons. I don't know exactly which ones I could delete -I have lots of objects and lots of elements listed in that window.
