Having Problem with Particles
on May 26, 2009 at 2:29:42 pm

I'm having a problem with my particles in my final render. They are there playing in my preview window in Maya, but when I rendered the final movie out the particles didn't show up. Is there a setting or something that I'm missing? Any ideas???
Thanks

hi

Yeah, particles are special :)

if you wanna render POINTS or any other that is not SW(software), they WON'T show in the simple render, you need to make a separate pass for particles and render them with the hardware renderer, if you use SW(SOFTWARE) particles this won't be a problem.

I kinda understand what your saying, and at the same time I don't. Is there a tutorial anywhere that could show you the difference and how to render the particles out.
Thanks

hit render

in the pop up render view, select maya Hardware instead of maya software or mentalray in the middle drop down menu

hit render again
