Export Ass and Kick from Render Settings

Hi

according to the doc from :

https://support.solidangle.com/display/AFMUG/Render+Settings#RenderSettings-ExportAssandKick

When I choose option 1: (Export Ass)

pm.setAttr("defaultArnoldRenderOptions.renderType", 1)

no .ass file stored in Data folder

Same thing for option 2: (Export Ass and Kick)
pm.setAttr("defaultArnoldRenderOptions.renderType", 2)

no kick launching

I have to export the scene manually via Arnold/Standin/Export or via File/Export; to get the ass file!

Thanks

Change the render type and then click Render > Render Current Frame.

If you can't render the current frame, then something's wrong with the install.

Hi Stephan

The log file are empty, no thing are stored in there, even I've an environment variable for that:
MTOA_LOG_FILE = D:\arnold.log (Now another problem with log file)
No Info in the Script Editor except when I change from Export ASS or Export Ass and Kick I get respectively the 02 commands, that's all.

pm.setAttr("defaultArnoldRenderOptions.renderType", 1)

pm.setAttr("defaultArnoldRenderOptions.renderType", 2)

I've tested with all verbosity level, no line in the console that say Exporting "Maya scene" or "writing scene".

But I still getting the Error at Maya Start up:

API error detected in plugins\mtoa\Main.cpp at line 631
: (kFailure): Unexpected Internal Failure

Works for me. Check the Arnold log and the script history.
