View Full Version : Black frames??

06-04-2007, 02:05 AM
After rendering a short animation, I got 17 black frames from a total of 150. I'm using Maya Software with Production quality. Why is this happening? Help!

Thanks in advance!

Check you render log for out of memory errors or other messages that might clue you in on what happened for those frames.

I've found no errors. The log looks the same for all the frames. I've noticed that after deleting some History the number of black frames diminished, but I'm still getting some.

were the frames random? at the end? was something blocking the camera? move the time slider to the frames that cam out black and make a test render. Rerender the 17 frames in case memory was an issue.

The frames aren't random nor at the end. Nothing is blocking the camera...

If you render just the frame that was black by itself is it still black?

Yes it is. I'll show some examples soon.
