Yeah, I followed this tutorial entirely

And as much as I've been able to re-do everything that he shows us, I cant get it to render.
Help? :sad:

Would help if you had a screen grab of your setup. Altho I would guess you missing a shape or material operator on your flow.

So what kind of information about any used operators in your flow does this screenshot contain?
Nice thread title, btw.

Having 2 monitors causes some problems

Ok, well I'll look around the web to find where to put it along with the material operator.

On your top Event drop in a Material Op, and drag and drop a material from the material Editor, also you'll need a Shape Op, either Shape instance (you can use any mesh) although to get you started you can use just a simple Shape Op and choose spheres, for exemple.
On your Flow there was nothing that could be rendered, unless you were using Krakatoa, for exemple, which is a point renderer.
Good luck, and I would advise you to start with the PFlow tutorials that come with Max, just to cover the basics.
