Viewport not rendering

Recommended Posts

I have just upgraded to 2014 and when I try to update a viewport to a rendered drawing, all I get is a black image. I've done this hundreds of times before but now I'm baffled. Is there something different in 2014 vs. 2010? Thanks!

Yes there are enormous differences between VW's 2010 & 2014. Unless I'm mistaken the entire RW's engine was changed, among other things? Still I am not sure why you'd get a black rendering, but someone here should know.

The one thought I have is that is might have to do with needing HDRI or environmental lighting. This is one thing that changed. Try messing around in the Lighting Options tab of the OIP for the VP? Good Luck!

Thanks for your help! I did find the culprit. The camera view was not taken in the correct view. Once I returned it to the TOP/PLAN view from TOP, everything rendered just fine. So, the process is still the same. Now I'll have to fiddle with all of the new adjustments!
