Can anyone confirm if Maya 8.5 64bit has a bug with render layers while creating an animation.
After creating "more" than 1 render layer for any given project and setting presets to the layers such as Occlusion the batch rendering output using MR appears to be bugged. Using fcheck to view the animation once rendered the results are definately not what is expected
When more than one render layer is part of the process to be rendered objects magically dissapear from the layers frames....When using the preset occlusion on a layer it "only" renders the first frame of the animation for the occlusion layer and the rest blank.
We have tested the problem now on 3 different spec PCs with many scenes even as simple as one sphere animating across a ground place and its still the same output.
Batch rendering a "single" layer with MR appears to work fine for any of the presets its only when using "multiple" layer batch rendering that this happens.
Is this a "feature" or can we call it a rock solid bug :S
