When you’re getting close to render time and wham! All the problems start… So Dorothy’s pupils in the newest render tests have disappeared which is a little confusing but thankfully it was easily resolved.
Perhaps much more alarmingly the Arnold batch render function has broken. At first we thought it was an installation error but everything seemed alright on the front. Then I realised my scene seemed much larger than it should’ve been (200-300mb) excessive for what was in the scene. Upon a major file clean up in the outlier, layers and geometry the file is now 80mb which to no surprise Maya handles much more smoothly. I set a render last night before the studio closed and it rendered out two frames before I had to leave, but fingers crossed!!
On a more positive note animation is going well I think!
