BAT export issue "Unknown system exception'
« on: July 21, 2019, 04:17:37 PM »
I am trying to export a somewhat large model (~160 x 160 x 410 meters) from the gMax BAT build (I don't know which one - but an old one I think - I don't have an acceptable 3DS max configuration for BAT) - when doing the thumbnail view it throws an 'unknown system exception' - I have uploaded a text copy of the error from gMax - (.txt)

I would be appreciate any help on this too, (note to moderators - I am not sure where this post would actually go - I am new here - I signed up to resolve this issue, if it is in the wrong category, feel free to move it and point me in the right direction for future reference) I had exported models successfully in the past, but that was on a different computer. 

The model itself is about 120mb in size - I tried exporting in draft mode too - I originally tried the high quality model which did not work.

In an unrelated note, if there is a key/function list for the SC4 PIM Extended - I would like a link to it too if some has one.

The model is too long, wide and tall.

Yeah - I reduced the size of the model - took off the top half - So far so good - retrying export now - Thumbnails complete...

I am doing a low quality model as a test too - the zoom 5 renders are completing without any issues

EDIT - The export worked - Made a few changes to name (had [model_name] copy.gmax as the name - copied the file before I removed the top half - Going to now try the high quality model for export.
