View Full Version : fprime renders okay...LW renderer pukes

09-30-2005, 08:00 AM
I use fprime for most of my renders but occasionally use the native LW renderer if I need HV, shaders etc. Recently, the LW render began to behave strangely. Namely, it renders the top half of my scene and then stops. LW is not frozeon or anything since when I finally give up and press the Abort button, the renderer stops. I have tried this with different scenes, without shaders or any plug-ins and the same thing always happens. Any ideas what going on? :help:

daft question for you...
Do you have your memory set up so LW is rendering a single segment image?
(Under Camera Properties) Sounds almost like it's doing segment 1 of 2 then giving up.

you may have accidentally turned on render a region only....

Doh! - never thought of that one, of course, FPrime doesn't "notice" that so yeah - good call.

Does it happen on all scenes?
