Make sure you choose scene preview in viper.

here's a quick scene.

I've had something similar when I had the "Near Clip Distance" (Shading/Advanced), set too far.

thank you for the scene. i hope i can figure out how to make it visible. i'll have a try


09 September 2003, 02:59 PM
yeah it works. i can also change the hv.... :D:D

but how have u done it? any special options i have to be carefull of?

Nothing I can think of, but like Mythingo said watch your near clip distance, check the scale of your scene/objects and change the clip distance to suit.

well i see. tired it on my own now and everthing worked fine. can't understand why i hasn't worked the first time i tried. crazy.

HV's tend to do that to me as well...they'd show up in viper and look great but never make it to the the scene or starting MD calculations sometimes worked

Ditto that.

My learning curve is a little lazier,...

You see the pretty feature scene and figure you can paste it into yours, then it's invisible.
