View Full Version : Render Status not displaying rendered images

05-09-2014, 08:09 AM
Hi fellow Lightwavers!

I thought I would ask... when I render my animation out, the Render Status display always shows black (blank ) images.
Shouldn't it be displaying the rendered images?

Attached is a screen grab.

My output files are being saved as .png (32 bit) HD 1920x1080 interlaced Even/Upper field.
However now I think about it, I don't recall it ever working for me.

It's because you don't have the Image Viewer displaying during render. The render thumbnails simply grab the images from the Image Viewer to make its thumbnail. Note, image viewer is different from Show Render in Progress.

I think that perhaps you have that the other way around. Preview needs to be on when rendering a sequence. Render Display > Image Viewer should be off, so that it doesn't gobble up memory.

I tried Preview / 320x240 - The sequence preview works fine now. A couple suggestions to Newtek for improvement would be :

1. Allow other some Preview modes in 16:9 aspect ( eg. 480x270 )
2. A way to see the small sequence preview without needing to see the live rendering ( as this slows the render slightly doesn't it? )
