Error can't create device??
show user profile  beautifulnightmare84
I'm trying to render a scene for a friend, and I don't know what he did to his file, but ERROR CAN'T CREATE DEVICE (or something like that) is preventing me from rendering even 1 single still... any ideas?

at what point are you getting this message? Sounds like a graphic card driver issue, so I would imagine you're seeing it when you start max?

yeah, i started with scanline, then tried mentalray, but it's gave me the same error... I have been using max for a while now, and i have NEVER seen this error, so i'm all...dumbfounded. lol

i've checked that. i made sure it wasn't being saved somewhere automatically.... All render output settings are on default.
