Renderman plugin error
on Jan 27, 2010 at 10:49:51 am

Hi,
Thanks in advance for any insight you may have on this. I have a file that used to be on a computer that was running Renderman, How can I remove the hidden plugin path reference to the Renderman plugin? I'm getting the following error when opening the file:

updateRendererUI;
updateRendererUI;
file -f -options "v=0" -typ "mayaAscii" -o "G:/Demo/Scenes/Prince/Prince001.ma";addRecentFile("G:/Demo/Scenes/Prince/Prince001.ma", "mayaAscii");
// Error: line 1: Plug-in, "RenderMan_for_Maya.mll", was not found on MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH. //

You need to either load the plugin or remove the nodes that Maya does not recognize.

You can select all nodes that Maya doesn't recognize with

select `ls -typ "Unknown"`;


View them in the hypergraph, check that you really can afford to loose them and then delete them.

or you can live dangerously and do

delete `ls -typ "Unknown"`;

which deletes them immediately.

Back up your files first.

I typed:
select `ls -typ "Unknown"`;
into the MEL command line and it didn't work, gave me the following error:
// Error: Unknown object type: Unknown

Hi,
Still looking for any help on this. Previous suggestions actually did not work. I have a file that used to be on a computer that was running Renderman, How can I remove the hidden plugin path reference to the Renderman plugin? I'm getting the following error when opening the file:

// Warning: file: G:/Demo/Scenes/Prince/Prince001.ma line 124848: Unrecognized node type 'RenderMan'; preserving node information during this session. //

FYI
If anyone cares, I found the answer:

You can also delete these unknown nodes via the UI. In the File > Optimize Scene option box, there's a checkbox for unknown nodes
