AFterburn crash
show user profile  gyster
I've got a Max scene (2010) it includes some grouped geometery (a jet and pilot), a Vue 8 scene, a superspray emitter, and a path. I am able to link the superspray to the jet, set a path constraint, and add keyframes for rotation. I can test render just fine until I add the superspray to Afterburn (4.0b). When I do this, the render (using vray 1.5) it locks either near the end of the first prepass, or early in the rendering phase. It also does something to the file, because after this, the file will not open in Max. Sometimes it will, but after a few crashes, it won't - sometimes after the first one.

Any help is appreciated.

I still don't know what the problem was, but I started a new scene in Max, and then merged the jet into that, added the other components, set the keyframes, and now it renders just fine.¤t=MissleShot.mp4

Since when did performing a barrel roll cause heat-seeking missiles to fail? :D
