I'm new to Blender, so not sure of the terminology.

I'm having a problem/misunderstanding with Blender 2.73, using the "Cycles Render" engine.

When I render a single frame to a .png file, I am seeing a model with missing detail compared to the Camera view in render mode. I've looked through and experimented with the setting in the render property sheet, but cannot seem to bring the detail back. Below are the images:

Rendered Image: Rendered Output Image

Camera View (rendered): Camera Rendered View

Original Solid View: Solid VIew

I'd be grateful if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'm not sure what additional settings I'd need to share.

Thanks Andrew

The visibility setting is different for viewport an render, check if the visibility is setup correctly for all objects

enter image description here

This also applies for modifiers, so if that din't help check that also.
