hi

i'm having trouble with the viper window it wont open ,i'm using 7.5

here is what i do

i'm trying to make neurons i finnished them in modeler ...fired up layout and placed the camera in a good position so that i have a nice shot of the core of the object to start texturing layers

*under render options the enable viper is checked.

next i click on the viper to open it up...with viper open i hit F9 to render a frame....but nothing loads up in vipÍr the screen just stays pitch black....even when i hit render in the viper screen....the thing is when i'm moving my mouse over the render button in viper it lights up , but when i try and click on it ,nothing hapens...

am i doing sommething wrong here or am i forgetting sommething
:confused:

ok i think i got it

quote manual:

"because viper requires rendering data it is available for surface samples only when the surface editor is launched from layout.

i hadn't opend the surface editor. looks as if that was the prblm
