Render Settings - Frame Range Gray
on Oct 16, 2009 at 5:26:15 pm

Can anybody tell me why the Frame Range settings in the Render Settings (Maya 2009) would be persistently grayed out. What am I missing, setting up the 100-frame timeline for a simple render?

Thanks.

It's because you have Maya set just to render a still image. To change that go to the render settings and in the Image File Output area set the "Frame/Animation ext" pulldown to one of the options other than "name.ext [Single Frame]". I'd suggest setting it to "name.#.ext". Not only does doing that tell maya you want to render out a sequence but it also sets the naming convention.

Thanks so much, Peter! I figured it was something simple -- I just couldn't find it.
