hair and fur (WSM) error

I was experimenting with ProRender in 3ds max and I wanted to simulating grass on a plane with some dynamic forces applied to it (so wind in various directions). However, when I tried to render the first 100 frames an error pops up (see attached). I am not sure what is the error, but when I converted the hair to mesh, it renders the scene except I have no way of simulating the generated mesh (although there is a way, but it gets complicated quickly based on simple research). Could this error be from the WSM modifier native in 3ds max? I tried with Corona, it works perfectly fine except my GPUs are not being utilized at all. Please let me know of a solution.

Are you running 2.5.430?

Re: hair and fur (WSM) error

Currently have version 2.5.423. Not sure where to get the latest update for the renderer. 

Update: 

I found this page that had version 2.5.430 (link: https://community.amd.com/docs/DOC-2089) for 3ds max. Installed it, but it gave me the same error as before. Not sure what is the error still.

Re: hair and fur (WSM) error

Hi, 

I was able to reproduce this error. I will inform the developers. 

Currently RPR for max doesnt support hair.
