View Full Version : sprites questions

10 October 2003, 10:34 AM
hey all,

i'm a not very experienced maya user, so please help me out here...
i've got an animation mapped onto sprites, works out fine in the viewport.
however, when i render using the hardware render buffer, nothing shows up except grey boxes for the sprites. what's going on?

this problems appears on my crappy laptops video card. haven't had the chance to try it on my workstation. could it be card-related, or is it some stupid setting i overlooked?

another question altogether: to create an explosion effect with sprites, what kind of images would you use on the sprites? small animations of smokey blobs or something of the kind?

thanks for any help you can give...

don't know about your first one, but for the explosion don't limit yourself to using just sprites. Multi-streak or points work just as well, not to mention Clouds and other things.

They all have their uses.
