View Full Version : black render...

i have a whiskey bottle, clear and fractured with bullet dynamics. i have surfaced the bottle with standard, pbr and several of the glass presets, with the gradient background. the render, while working okay on preprocess, gives me a totally black frame when finished. not even the gradient background. and the surface panel disappeared. push the button and it flashes into existence for a half second, then gone. does anyone have any ideas? thanks.

In Render properties window, in Buffers tab have you checked Final_Render?

You might want to give more details regarding your lighting & render settings then.

My first though was "They've brought back 'lenscap'!

thank you everyone, since we all seem to be stumped here, i have rebuilt everything from scratch and it seems to work fine now. there is nothing appreciably different than the other version, it's just new. i really do thank you for your observations.

I had completely white render window - however this was graphics card driver issue and resolved using an older driver...
