I'm not sure what happened, but all of a sudden Maya 2022 Arnold renderer is leaving one blue square on every render I make. I have rendered these same scenes previously with no issue. I even tried to figure how to contact Autodesk Tech support, but apparently if you have a student license, you don't have the option.
Below are a few renders I made with Arnold CPU render. GPU render didn't seem to have this issue , but I'm not using GPU because it looks like garbage when I render anything with glass or light :/.
There is a blue square on the left side of every render. These are actually in 2 different files. I've tried rendering in a fresh scene, and have reset my preferences multiple times. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Maya. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what causes this, and a fix? I really need to be able to use CPU to render. Please Help? - Thank you.
