Hello the COW!

I know there must be a step I'm missing but I can't seem to get these Pyrocluster Thinking Particles output to a final render. I can see them in the viewport but as soon as I try to render to Pic viewer they vanish.

Here's the scene file (C4D 14) 8050_tpnotrenderingcow.zip

Here's a preview of what I'm talking about:

My apologies, Brian. WHat I have is a Matrix object set to object mode with it set to generate Thinking Particles and a Pyrocluster shader applied to PArticle Geometry. Does that help?

ah, I see. The sweep nurb was turned off so it's not generating anything... with it on I see PC in viewport and the picture viewer

Well, raise my rent! Dang, I'm feeling a little foolish now. So, I turned on the Sweep NURB, added a compositing tag to it and unchecked all the tag properties and voila, the particles rendered in pic viewer. I guess sometimes it just takes another pair of eyes. Anyway, thanks very much and so sorry to waste your time!

Cheers,
Jason

no trouble, you can also turn the sweep on and just hide it with the visibility dots (just turn them both red) rather than a compositing tag (not that there's anything wrong with that, it's a good way too, just another option)
