I'm new to Blender and I finished one scene. Everything is good when I look at the scene in the object mode or rendered preview, but when I actually render the scene, my doughnuts disappear and the icing starts looking very sharp and edgy. Please, look at the attached images. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? enter image description here

My assumption is that it is hidden from the render. Go to the outliner and make sure that both the eye and camera aren't grayed out.

Otherwise make sure that all of the following optios are checked (make sure object is selected). enter image description here



In the modifier tab make sure render of the subdivision-surface is same as view.:

    $\begingroup$ Another possibility can be scene render layers. The sharp edges can be due to the two settings in the SS modifier: one for preview and one for rendering $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I guess, but I watched the series (Blender Guru) which this scene is based on, and it doesn't touch render layers. I doubt a beginner would use more intermediate tools such as render layers. But yes it could be the render layers. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, so many possibilities, That's why I've been asking for the exact problematic file, especiallly for a what-is-wrong-with-my-scene question like this. $\endgroup$ Apr 30, 2017 at 13:13
  • $\begingroup$ A file would be helpful because of what you said $\endgroup$
