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!

Forest Pro doesn't seem to work with RenderMask

I have a forestpro object that contains a load of bushes (they are vrayproxies). When I select the forestpro object and use rendermask, the render is just black. Does render mask not support forestpro properly? We are on Max2016. Cheers.
