Short name 'aal' is reserved issue

Hey guys ,

We started a test shot recently with assembly in maya , but when we created AOVs and set up all the render layers in render setup , an error caught our eyes and it shows up more and more ,

// Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Long name 'attributeAliasList' is reserved. // // Error: line 1: Short name 'aal' is reserved. //

I opened my maya file in notepad and found out there are some lines :

createNode transform -n "aiAreaLight2";

rename -uid "E91F5201-4B42-8F51-ECBB-B19993747E57";

createNode aiAreaLight

-n "aiAreaLightShape2"

-p "aiAreaLight2"; rename -uid "5182FD94-47D9-C401-2E1F-32A106642123";

addAttr -ci true -h true -sn "aal" -ln "attributeAliasList" -dt "attributeAlias";


This is a Anorld Area Light created by default !!!


Something like this happens for every file now . I tried to look in up online but looks like no body has come across issue before .

Can anyone help me with please ?

Thanks in advance!
