Fix Broken Render Layers!!



Maya's render layers are notoriously stubborn, often breaking when reopening scenes or when working with referencing in a production pipeline. I designed these tools to overcome and recover scenes and render layers suffering from these problems. This script extends the Layer Editor menus to include function to do the following:

- repairs and recovers locked render layers caused by referencing
- instantly rebuild all render layers, even locked layers
- import and export your render layers between scene files
- diagnose locked layers to find out what nodes are missing
- interface to list and remove individual layer members, overrides, and shader overrides


Install:

source and execute abxRenderLayers();
Your render layer editor menu will change from "Layers" to "abxLayers" and you'll find new menu items there as well as the right-click menu's for each layer.
