ERROR : 2004 – Invalid pointer – [line 2]


When you render with xsibatch, you get this error even though the frame does render successfully.

ERROR : 2004 – Invalid pointer – [line 2]

For example:

COMMAND: -render "C:\Users\blairs\Documents\Support\Project\Scenes\Sphere.scn" -
frames 2-4
>Loading: C:\Users\blairs\Documents\Support\Project\Scenes\Sphere.scn...
' ERROR : 2004 - Invalid pointer - [line 2]
' INFO : 4034 - Loaded scene was created with build number: 9.5.184.0 - compatibility version: 900
' ERROR : 2004 - Invalid pointer - [line 2]
OpenScene "C:\Users\blairs\Documents\Support\Project\Scenes\Sphere.scn", False,True
' INFO : Rendering all passes: Passes.Default_Pass
' INFO : Rendering frames '2-4'
' INFO : Rendering pass 'Default_Pass'...
' INFO : Rendering frame 2 (0.0% done)
' INFO : Rendering frame 3 (33.3% done)
RenderPasses "Passes.Default_Pass", , , , siRenderVerbosityDefault

If you running xsibatch from a render manager, this error may cause the render manager to quit the render job.

You can workaround this by renaming the ICEFlow plugin (Application\Plugins\ICEFlow.dll). This plugin manages the transfer of data between Softimage and Maya (the one-click ICE workflow).
