Lighting won't work when put in a symbol


#1

Hello Everybody,

I have a question for my work, I use a lot of symbols. Recently we updated our Cinema R11.5 to Cinema 4D R19.053 and now i don’t get the lighting work anymore in our symbols.
I have attached a image that explain what i do, maybe some one here has the answer for me?

Your symbols null is invisible for viewport and rendering (the two red dots behind) and so are all children of it, like your light.

This is the way of using Symbols. MissKate just did fine (almost)

@misskate
Put them in a null and use the red dots.
But be sure not to check render instance.
