When blender is rendering I can see my model but at the very end the render goes black and the image saves as a black image. I am using cycles. Any help would be awesome!

  • $\begingroup$ What exactly did you do to fix the the previous issue? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 26 '14 at 2:28
  • $\begingroup$ wohoo you are back! I was rendering two layers at once and my crown was hiding behind one of them apparently. What should I do for this new problem? $\endgroup$ – rain Jul 26 '14 at 2:37
  • $\begingroup$ I was hoping I would be able to tell what the current problem is by what you did to fix the previous issue, but it seems @David beat me to it ;) $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 26 '14 at 2:39
  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 wow, that is a message I did not except to see :) PS with the @ name in the middle of the message it did not alert me. $\endgroup$ – David Jul 26 '14 at 2:43

It sounds like the Use Nodes check mark in the compositer is checked, but the image is not connected to the output.

To fix the above issue you can:

  1. If you are not using the compositer on your image, uncheck the Compositing check mark in the Properties window.
    enter image description here

  2. If you do want to use the compositer, then you will need these two nodes at a minimum; the Render Layers and the Composite nodes.
