  • $\begingroup$ One other GOTCHA is an animation frame you aren't aware of that is moving an object out of camera. This is routine with purchased objects that you Append into your drawing. Make sure to check your Timeline for keyframes for the offending object. $\endgroup$

@cegaton select the affected objects and be sure the icon camera in the outliner window is active.

Restrict rendering

Or be sure the object properties "Cycle Settings" has the Camera selected in the Ray visibility settings.
