View Full Version : Warning for Matrox users

02-23-2014, 04:01 PM
If you use a Matrox card (mine is a Matrox MXO2 Mini Max, I don't know if it happens in all of them) with the Lightwave plugin to display renders, and you try to use Amleto, (but I think this would be the same for any render manager since the app that produces the error is lwsn) and you get an error that mvcommonmechanisms.dll is missing on render nodes, it's because of some incompatibility between Matrox and at least Lightwave 11.6.2. I haven't tried this with 11.6.1.

Just a warning in case you can't figure out what's wrong. I guess I'll report this to both Newtek and Matrox and maybe they'll figure out what's wrong. It seems obvious to me that the Matrox plugin is looking for the Matrox drivers in all machines, and when it can't be found then it gives that error. The weird thing is that even though I opened the scene and changed the render preview to none, it still shows the error when I load it in Amleto. Again, this is not an Amleto problem, the error message is from lwsn.
