Please Help Why when I render my 200 frame animation everything is the world color and not the animation? I have fully created the models and environment and when I run the animation in the UI under material it works fine, when I try to animate the animation is just gives me grey frames. I cannot figure out why it wont render the actual animation.


  • $\begingroup$ Is your camera outside of the background mesh? (looks like a dome maybe, with a texture?) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Could you please post a .blend file, it would really help us figure out what is wrong. You can use a service like pasteall.org/blend $\endgroup$ Feb 9, 2015 at 1:59

    $\begingroup$ It's very hard to guess from the video you posted, but there are some objects that are disabled for rendering (the camera icon on the outliner window) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ ground is activated but invisible. check renderlayers, compositing and sequencer. else blend will be needed. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ From the Outliner area in the video, I can see renderability for some objects are disabled, maybe you could try to enable the right ones. BTW, OSL is toggled in render panel, are you sure that's intended? $\endgroup$ Feb 9, 2015 at 4:49
