hi I have a blender animation, it's very basic I was just testing some of the features to be honest but i have got incredibly stuck because it refuses to render what the camera is doing.

Does anyone know why not?

Here is the issue happening: (you have to jump to about 20s in the provided sample GIF to see the grey screen issue)

Check if your objects lie within your camera clipping range.

This is difficult to answer because you do not clearly show your render settings.

While an animated GIF may showcase your directorial acumen, it is not very informative.

That said, be sure to check if you have compositing enabled, if you're not using it then disable it.

If you are using it then check that the compositor nodes are wired up. A lot of users have the issue that the output node is disconnected, resulting in the grey screen of render. Not sure if this is a default setting in blender, if so it should probably be listed as a bug as it regularly appears here as a question.

If that doesn't work, I suggest you use the search facility of this site to track down your problem:

  • $\begingroup$ I will check what you say about a bug. my wife installed blender the same day on her laptop and she does not have the same issue it may be an nividia thing I am investigating how fast to take pen drawings, extract from white background, and animated in 2d only for "puppet style" kids animations vs a series parallax background $\endgroup$ – Mr Heelis Dec 13 '19 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ You can always upload a blend file to your question, so we can test on other systems, just let me know what version of blender it was created on. $\endgroup$ – Moog Dec 13 '19 at 16:16
