Maya crashes on every 2nd / 4th rendered Arnold image [LOG INCLUDED]

Hi, I'm trying to render out a 150 frame animation in Arnold. For some reason, every second or fourth frame (it's random), it crashes without warning. I've tried lowering my samples, but no matter how low I go, it still crashes. Taking the scene over to my laptop and rendering there has the same result. Clearly something is missing/wrong/corrupt, but I can't really decipher the crash log to pinpoint what the problem is. Hopefully one of you guys can help, I would really appreciate that! 🙂

 

My render settings: https://imgur.com/a/T3g8Bqg

 

WHAT I'VE DONE SO FAR THAT HASN'T WORKED:

- Deleting the prefs folder.

- Downgraded to Maya 2022.1, which also downgraded my Arnold. This means neither the downgrade or the newest version is causing this problem.

- This crash log: Solved: Maya 2017 Fatal Crash - Autodesk Community - Maya on the forum is fairly similar to my crash report. After trying it myself, it simply removed all Arnold textures and it's functionalities from the scene. In other words, this failed.

- My specs should also be more than good enough for something like this render, with both PCs being well-equipped with no bottlenecked hardware.

 

Here is the crash log:

UPDATE:

 

Exporting the elements in my scene as a .mb file, then importing it into a NEW Maya scene fixed this for me. Still not sure what the original problem was, but the file itself was apparently the problem.
