Section Viewports black background

Recommended Posts

If I make a section viewport then render it with OpenGL  the background is black.  Also there is no crop to edit.  Is this normal or am I missing something.

If there is no crop to edit, you should be able to draw one with the rectangle tool.


Perhaps the black background is coming from a RW Background? Check that the Viewport's OIP isn't set to have a RW Background.

I've had the black backgrounds - using Renderworks background as well as OpenGL, but only on some projects and not others - advice awaited on why. Best workaround has been to use simple sky background which is at least white > blue gradient.
