aiImage causes warnings in Maya

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this article to ask something about MtoA plugin,

I create a number of "aiImage" nodes and save a file, then after I open the file, I always get a bundle of warnings like below,

// Warning: line 0: 'defaultColorMgtGlobals.cmEnabled' is already connected to 'Env_dHill_library_wallLeft_pillar_wood_aiIm2.colorManagementEnabled'. // 
// Warning: line 0: 'defaultColorMgtGlobals.configFileEnabled' is already connected to 'Env_dHill_library_wallLeft_pillar_wood_aiIm2.colorManagementConfigFileEnabled'. // 
// Warning: line 0: 'defaultColorMgtGlobals.configFilePath' is already connected to 'Env_dHill_library_wallLeft_pillar_wood_aiIm2.colorManagementConfigFilePath'. // 
// Warning: line 0: 'defaultColorMgtGlobals.workingSpaceName' is already connected to 'Env_dHill_library_wallLeft_pillar_wood_aiIm2.workingSpace'. // 

"Env_dHill_library_wallLeft_pillar_wood_aiIm2" is one of the "aiImage" nodes,

If I create lots of "aiImage" nodes, it tease me with upto 10,000 lines of warnings,

Can I get a solution for that?

I am using MtoA 1.4.2.1 and Arnold Core 4.2.16.2,

Kind regards.

That isn't an MtoA-specific issue:

https://www.google.ca/search?q=defaultColorMgtGlobals.cmEnabled+is+already+connected

I have to do something like copy/paste of image nodes to get that error. In that case, the aiImage nodes end up with the same UUID:

createNode aiImage -n "pasted__aiImage1";
rename -uid "4FF3A2B6-4C9F-B369-0BA7-69ADB4F5303F";
setAttr ".filename" -type "string" "D:/Projects/maya/Support//sourceimages/noicon.jpg";
setAttr ".cs" -type "string" "sRGB";

createNode aiImage -n "pasted__aiImage1";
rename -uid "4FF3A2B6-4C9F-B369-0BA7-69ADB4F5303F";
setAttr ".filename" -type "string" "D:/Projects/maya/Support//sourceimages/noicon.jpg";
setAttr ".cs" -type "string" "sRGB";

@Stephen Blair

I make a scene with file nodes and aiImages like below,

513-defaultcolormgtglobals.png

But, I get warnings from only aiImage nodes

I hope you to test saving a scene with file node and aiImage node, opening the file.

Here is sample file, compare.zip

Of course I've tested scenes with the aiImage and file nodes. Everybody uses those nodes.

I just wonder what version of maya did you test? I get that issue in Maya 2017 update 3.

Hi
The problem is there at start up of Maya, before creating the node "aiImage"
Start Maya and just look at the Script editor :

file -f -new;
// Warning: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/startup/rememberViewportSettings.mel line 29: Active stereo does not work with Aero enabled. Active stereo has been disabled. //

Does this have to do with environment variable?
