As it says in the title when I come to render my scene, the hair system just stops working and looks nothing like the material preview or viewport render.

Not really sure whats causing it, I have another patch of grass in a pot and that works fine, and I can't seem to see any difference in settings.

The only thing I could find it when I turned off children there was no hair at all, the parents didn't render. Also, when I turn on virtual parents it seems to work but with very few hairs and odd shape, so it doesn't fix the problem at all.

I am quite new to particle systems so there could be an incredibly simple fix that I am missing.

Here's the file:

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris I've not really used blender stack exchange before, but I found blend exchange; is that how to do it. Doesn't seem to be working though, says "There was an internal error attempting to complete your request." $\endgroup$

I am stupid and had a modifier that was turned off in viewport but on for render, I for some very irritating reason didn't check until now.
