Some frames rendering black C4D

I'm a noob to anything 3D. I have a 300 frame animation and the first 93 frames are all rendering as pure black. Every frame after 93 looks great. The animation is a flyover and the landscape I created has a loooot of polygons. The early part of the animation has most of the polygons in frame and the later part zooms in on an area.

My computer is an old machine - '09 macbook pro, 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.

I sent some stepped test frames to a render farm (frames 0, 30, 60, 90, 120and, sure enough, the first 4 frames came back black but 120 was fine.
Is there anything I can do to fix this? I've attached the file for anyone to have a look at it. I'm using C4D R17.

Cheers, Tarn

Hi Interactiveboy
Sorry about that. It should be attached now. Let me know if it still isn't uploaded. FYI - Since I posted this question I found out that it was the transparency of the water that was causing the black frame renders. When Iuntick transparency I'm able to render. I couldn't work out exactly which aspect of the transparency was causing this. But ideally I would like to find out why because the transparency really "makes" the water.

Thanks for looking
