Hi -

Just got my copy tonight - haven't activated the "key"... but I don't know if that matters...

I've been opening up sample files and rendering them, but in many files (especially particle ones) VIPER doesn't let me render, and when I render in the main window, it completes instantly and nothing shows up...

Any suggestions appreciated!

(Now I'm gonna go sit on the couch and read the manual...)

Many of the particle example scene files will not show anything when rendered. The scenes were set up with emitters which are single points and not polys, so they won't render. You would need to activate Hypervoxels to give the particles a 'look'. The particle emitters are really just the motions.

Yeah, that's what I figured after reading a bit more...

Thanks,
