Problem with file names with Lightgroups AOV. Maya 2018

Hi All.

We are having a problem with the lightgroups when we render the entire sequence. The name of the specific lightgroups appear at the end of the file, as you can se in the attached image, instead of the frame number.

filename-error.jpg

This is really annoying because we have to rename every frame for the lightgroups, to use it as a image sequence.

As you can see in the attached images, this only happens with the lightgroups AOVs, the others AOVS are fine, have the number at the end of the file, so we can perfectly work with them

I also attach an image that shows how it should be:

filename-correct.jpg

We were working with the 3.3.0 arnold version, and everything was okey, but we had to rollback to the 3.0.0.2 version, and it was then when this problem appeared.

Please, anyone could have an idea about why this is happening? thanks!

It's happening because you rolled back to an old version.

MtoA 3.0.1 release notes

  • Light Group AOVs now add the group suffix before the frame number
