View Full Version : Black squares when rendering

I am rendering a small scene and black squares start forming and growing progressively with each frame. What the up?

any still to see the issue?

That usually means you've hooked up a nodal surface in the wrong way.

Or Discovery Mode?

Its not Discovery Mode, I reconfigured the scene and now instead of black squares growing any where a vertex map moves on the screen it blacks that area out and the blacked out tracers of the vertex mapped object grows. Lightwave is very buggy. I even changed the vertex map several times to no avail.

It might help if you posted your scene. This couldn't be a clip distance issue, could it (under Display Options, 'd' hotkey)?

Can you post s render or two so that we can see what you are talking about?

Are you using Lw 9.3?
If not, you should upgrade. It's free and will fix a few bugs for you in nodes that could cause what you are describing.
