Hi there,

I'm trying to render a simple test job submitted through 3dsmax 2016 with Vray and without.

I am getting this error:

Error launching "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\3dsmax.exe" -server "-_pipe:9292_183850765"

This is the location of my product, I can launch 3dsmax -server from the command prompt.. but it won't start up in Smedge (2016). I am submitting through Render Pass Manager (http://rpmanager.com) and it appears in the que fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Sorry for the delay in responding. The issue here is that Smedge is designed to run the 3dsmaxcmd.exe executable, not 3dsmax.exe directly. The command line renderer has a different syntax and operation. Please try adjusting the executable path to see if it helps.

In the future, if you have support issues, it is usually faster to contact , given that these forums have low traffic.

Thank you,
