Ok so I "finally" got the cloth simulation to work and do what I needed it to do.
Now.... I have my scene lit with Image Based Lighting, So when I render a single frame in Mental Ray it looks just as it needs to. The problem I need advise on is when rendering with Batch renderer. Once the renderer completes the job I go into AE to import the Iff's but they all come out blank ( just alpha ), Has anyone come across this?
