Max froze while Render Mask was trying to reneder a mask

Hi Ivan,

This is a wonderful tool ,it has have saved me a lot of time in my workflow.
Thank you very much for sharing it. Love it..

At the moment Max crashed while rendermask was trying to render a scene leaving the scene in that mask state. Now all my cameras render in that mask state.

Could you/anyone please help me to revert the scene back to the normal state?
It would save a days work for me.

Thanks in advance

MaxScript rollout handler exception - "vfb_autosave_enable"

Hi, thanks a lot for this script. It's part of my workflow since the day i found it!

I'm trying to use it with Corona, but i'm getting an error every time i try to render a mask. I'm attaching you a printscreen of the problem.

Thanks again for taking the time, creating and improving this script!
