Help!

I have set up a volumetric light, which looks exactly how I want in the VPR preview. But when I render it doesn't show up!
Any ideas?

See attached image which shows it rendering minus the light, despite the light being obvious in the preview behind it...

Is there an unticked box lurking in the rendering controls for volumetrics?

Which Camera are you using? IIRC, Volumetrics may not render in some Cameras.

Says in the window that it's Perspective Camera.

opacity issue? try tweaking some of the opacity values maybe.

With no atmosphere to filter out all the cosmic rays hitting the memory module, that's what happens ;)

OK, so I really should have tried this before.

I rebooted and it started working as expected. Thanks to all for taking the time to respond, and here are a few renders of the finished thing.
