VW2017 Renderworks 'Glow' textures render as black

Question

I've noticed that intermittently on both my Mac and PC systems, any texture with a glow setting is rendered black at the 'edges' stage of a render in Realistic Interior mode.  At first they are fine and as soon as 'edges' is started they turn black. See below for an example.

The 'ceiling lights' in question here are simple extrudes with a glow texture.  The problem also extends to screen object textures.

 

The only way to stop this behaviour is to re-start vectorworks completely and re-render.

Could you please send me that file? Direct message or emailing tech@vectorworks.net both work fine. I can test it here and submit as a bug. I had this happen once or twice but never got it to happen repeatably in a given file.

This issue was confirmed and filed as a bug: VB-138985

I found no other workaround than restarting Vectorworks entirely, and even that didn't always resolve it permanently.

Thanks Jim

 

Hoping to see some major stability improvements in this service pack, save me losing my hair quite so quickly

Hi

I'm still fighting with this one as well: very frustrating to see a beautiful render collapse at the last minute
