View Full Version : Sub-bug report: black inside cam view, unrepeatable

In resurrecting an Ancient LWS, I got the effect illustrated below. Both in VPR and the render, the area in the camera view rendered as black, when it shouldna.

Unfortunately, once I packaged the file for uploading, the bug terminated itself.

While it was alive, I tried many many permutations of camera parameters and was unable to defeat it.

I don't want to beat this particular dead horse --the lws file starts with "LWSC 1" --- but what could have prevented the backdrop from rendering? I figure packaging the file rewrote it in a LW11-valid format, but I should have been able to find what was preventing the render in the panels, no?

Just for grins, I append the original file below:
