I've very new to Blender (only a few weeks) so I'm guessing these are rookie mistakes. I created this crocheted dragon, first by adding a "crochet" image texture with a displacement as well. Then I added a hair particle to the body of the dragon and as a second material to create the fuzz of the "crochet" fabric. The 3D viewport render view looks great to me but when I do an actual render of the object, only the hair particle material is rendering and the crochet is not (Cycles - Blender 2.83)

When I render the object, only the hair particle material is rendering.

Thank you in advance for your help!

ANSWER(edit): Susu was correct. I did not have "Show Emitter" enabled in my Particle Settings. That fixed the issue.

  • $\begingroup$ I have removed my second question. Thank you both for your comments. Still need help on my initial question, above. $\endgroup$ – Dale May Jun 28 '20 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ In the particle settings>render is the show emitter box enabled? $\endgroup$ – susu Jun 28 '20 at 16:15

Isn't that like material is there, but is hidden under hairs because you have set in Properties >
Viewport Display > Amount like 10% of hairs, but 100% is rendered?

If Susu is right, I will delete my A.

  • $\begingroup$ Susu, the "show emitter" box was not enabled. I enabled it and that fixed the issue. Thank you very much! $\endgroup$ – Dale May Jun 28 '20 at 17:37
