Unified view / Renderworks

Recommended Posts

Hello -

So another frustrating day with the unintuitive VW has just got off on the wrong foot again.

Couldn't work out why textures / decals (now that VW has stopped crashing because my decal textures were 1MB) were not rendering in Fast Renderworks mode. They were showing as white solids.

Turned off Unified View and hey presto. Another weird quirk of VW to add to the list.

Why is this ? Does anyone know ? Or am I doing something wrong ? What's another half an hour fiddling through the options between friends anyway.

I don't see the same behaviour. Decals are rendering both in Fast & FQ Renderworks with and without Unified View.

It could be a memory issue.

Perhaps copy the object and paste into a new file to test whether you can duplicate the issue there.

I'm now having a similar problem.

OGL Rendering is not working in Unified View - a wireframe becomes a white sheet- however

A single layer will successfully render with UV turned off and Active Layer Only mode selected,


if I copy & paste into a new file it works as expected. I suspect some sort of creeping memory bug that's file related. Could this be right? Is there a solution?

I can't find any difference using custom OGL settings. The only way to render successfully (on this file only) is in a SLVP or on a single Design Layer, Unified View off and Layer Visibility>Active Layer Only
