Object 'renderCurrentFrameMenuItem' not found

Hi y'all! I recently decided to dip my feet with Arnold, and I've been having this issue when rendering with the CPU. Unfortunately as I'm using aiToon, I can't switch to GPU. Does anyone know what might cause this problem? I've tried resetting my prefs, and while the first "render" didn't give this error (which returned in the second render), the first render never went past 0%.


Thank you!

*note I initially tried with progressive, and have since disabled it.


I'm using Maya 2022, and the default version of Arnold that comes with it.

Hi Stephen,


Yup it's an issue that occurs when I open up the render settings. Unfortunately I can't provide any logs, it seems to occur sporadically. However when it does appear, the Render list only contains Render Settings and Render Using. I can usually get rid of it after a few restarts of Maya so I guess in the grand scheme of things it's not a huge issue.

This happens when you open the Render Settings, right?

// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2022/scripts/others/mayaRenderMenu.mel line 114: menuItem: Object 'renderCurrentFrameMenuItem' not found. //

That won't affect the render, so if there's a problem with a render, it's something else.


When you start Maya, what is logged in the Output Window?

Before you try to open the Render Settings, can you open the Script Editor, and click History > Log All Commands?
