Deformed objects not showing in Render

Recommended Posts

Hi

Recently i get an issue with deformers in render:

Object with deformers applied to them are not rendered in the Picture Viewer, but do render in the viewport.

Never happened before.

happens either if the deformer is animated or not.

Solved it by point caching , but that's not a solution .

Any idea what it can be?

 

R18 Studio here.

 

Thanks

 

Gil

Is it possible to upload your project file or at least a part that demonstrates the problem?

 

My only guess before you provide a file is if you have a project that requires rendering all frames from frame 0 but you are testing, say, just frame 50. It may not be able to calculate the necessary things to render correctly if you don't render it all or cache first.

  • I'll see if i can reduce a file with the problem and upload it.

    It Happens even with a simple bend deformer, so caching is a bit of overkill.

    Forgot to mention these are animated objects with deformers apllied\ or animated deformers on static objects- both creates the problem.

     

    Thanks

  • its not a matter of layers, happpens in new scene as well.

    And it is the object itself that isn't showing in the final render- not the deformers action

     

    Hope it's not confusing :)

    If you're saying you can create a whole new project, add an object and a deformer (which deformer?) and the object doesn't render, that doesn't really make sense. 

     

    It doesn't even make sense when you say the object itself isn't showing, but you seem to say the deformers action is? That doesn't make sense either. How does the deformer working with no object?

  • Let's say i create a cube

    Add a bend deformer with animation for the bend

    render:  no cube is showing

     

    I know it doesn't make sense, that's the thing (should have a tag for that in the forum :)  )

    the deformer action isn't showing, because the object isn't showing.

    I'll try to recreate the issue and upload.

    Thanks ABMotion for taking the time

    If you create a new project add a cube with a keyframed (are you just keyframing?) bend deformer and nothing renders, but you can just add a cube and it does render, then I'd suggest either resetting preferences and/or reinstalling Cinema 4D as it sounds like something has become corrupt, assuming that has worked for you in the past. That is obviously very basic and should just work.
