View Full Version : Weird problem. VPR gets stuck

08-22-2017, 01:05 PM

I am having a weird problem here.

VPR stopped working properly. It creates the first "pass" (big squares) then gets stuck flickering and doesn't complete the image.

Now the weird part: If I try to do something else, then it works. Which means for instance:

Go to the lightwave menu and select "about lightwave", the splash windows pops and the VPR stars working properly in the background


In the scene editor select an item and ask to remove it. A little window pops asking to confirm and VPR starts working properly. Cancel or complete the action and VPR gets stuck again.

I've reinstalled lightwave (keeping the set up) and the problem persists.

Normal rendering is not affected.

I am clueless here. Any help?. Never seen this ever before.

I am on mac. 10.10.5 and Lightwave 15.3

Sounds like you have a shader or node connection that is not VPR friendly.

Thanks Danner

I've found the culprit

As it happens I had accidentally activated the " Studio LIVE " button on the render tab.

Unchecking it fixes the problem.

It took a while to figure it out.

Thanks for posting your problem. Had the same issue over 6 months ago. Never found a solution. In the end did a clean install. Now I know what could have been the problem. Good to know for the future.

sometimes deleting .cfg helps
