Expected: render what I see in the viewport.

Seen: Nothing in render.

I want to render vertext of a monkey. I simply converted a monkey to points than convert points to vertex. The vertex in the viewport is what I want, but when I render nothing is shown.

Not sure what I am missing here. I tried to set material but it does not work.

    $\begingroup$ Blender doesn't render vertices, it renders faces. If you only have vertices with no faces being drawn between them, there's nothing to render. You can instanciate a small sphere on each vertex, wouldn't that work for you? $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 18, 2022 at 5:11

But you could instanciate a small sphere on each vertex, then the sphere instances would show up in the render.
