Rendering produces red block

Recommended Posts

I've just encountered something i've never seen before in using VWs for the past 6 years.


When rendering a viewport in Fast Renderworks or Realistic Exterior Final, the result produces a red block on the left side of the drawing. 

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?  Could it be a memory or processor issue?


It only happens on one file.  All the other files seem to render fine.

Do you still see this if you create a new viewport from scratch? It isn't an object inside Crop or Annotations or anything like that?

I trashed the viewport and made another.  It seems to be ok now.  The problem was the viewport.  Strange i've never seen this before.

Thanks Jim.
