I have set up a fairly simple scene and have gone through the process of making and animating a sapling. I left it as a curve and applied a material to it. When I hit render, the tree doesn't show at all.
Note that the 'tree' object is NOT the tree I want rendered. That's why it is unviewable and urenderable
I'm using cycles, and even if it is a material problem, the tree should still render just as a blank thing, right? Is there something special I have to do in order for curves to render?
The tree renders fine in rendered view port.
Here is a stripped version of the .blend:
