xgen render patch error


I'm having a problem when trying rendering animated fur with Aux Render Patch.

After exporting patches for the xgen descriptions (selecting the geo that is driving the xgen descriptions), I changed the Render Mode from "Live" to "Batch Render" for all my descriptions, checked "Use Aux Render Patch" and insert the correct path for the .abc file I exported.

When I try to render, it appears a syntax error that says:

Error: XGen: Error in expression "head_xdesc::arnold_auxRenderPatch" []

Error: Syntax error near '/':


After that, the xgen do not render.

I already tried to move my entire project from the NAS to my local machine, as well as change the path name of the patch from absolute to relative, but nothing has worked.

I'm using MtoA 3.3.0 with Maya 2018.4

Is anyone experiencing the same problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you!
