View Full Version : Oddity with Renders using Scene from Inside LW 8

03-14-2007, 06:47 AM
Hi Everyone,

I am having real odd problems while rendering the Faucet and Flowing Water Scene fro Dan Ablans, Inside LW 8. In and only in the downwards flowing water part of the render appears often horizontal lines of black which appear to be areas that did not render or some other problem. I am seeing this behavior on multiple systems (different builds and differenct CPUs) as well as the 8.3 and 8.5 versions of Lightwave.

Also, if I try loading the scene in any of the 9.x flavors, it louds but the water/particles no longer flow down to the bottom of the sink, but rather seem to think that the bottom of the sink or bounce area, is at the top of the sink.....

It is impossible to get a useable render. Have even tried with and without the Optimization turned on or off and with Anti-aliasing or not.

Anyone else seen this or got any ideas how to get proper rendering out of it?

I've also had problems with that particular tutorial, especially with the "bounce area" being not properly defined. I never did get it figured out, though.

Not much help, but at least I can say that the problem is not on your end.
