So I figured out what was happening. Shadow ray visibility was disabled for the glass. When I merged the glass with the frame, shadow ray visibility got enabled again.

The emission shader renders almost completely transparent to PNGs, I believe, because it is rendering no volume. You can use the Emission Strength and Emission Color properties of the Principled Volume shader to correct this, and then you don't need the emission shader.

It probably bugs because you haven't created a Normal Map node between your Image Texture and your Principled BSDF Normal input socket. Don't forget to set your Image Texture to Non-Color:

I've written a very basic AddOn, that does basically what you need. How to use the AddOn: The AddOn let's you select your files, puts them one after another in your current scene, and renders them to an outpu-directory. The AddOn adds a button to the Output-Properties-panel. By clicking it, you open a file-browser-window. Select all your files you intend ...

I figured it out! I'm so proud! I turned on composite in the Output properties under post-processing, Now when I render the pngs the render says "initializing execution" and the final image is noise free! I look forward to learning about EXRs etc, but I'm just trying to do this one step at a time haha. Thanks @JachymMicha and @susu!

Steps of the viewport and render sections of the particle settings were too high.

I'm just posting this so I can post the pic. This is just an example of how you should set up your nodes. I used a multiply on the MixRGB node because I often transfer dark ridges this way, but I don't know what your image looks like, so I can't tell what the values are doing. If you need the lights, use Lighten or Add. Or disregard all of that, and use ...

Make the backdrop larger so that it fills the frame. Or if you are clipping an existing object, then adjust the clip distance for the camera. How do I increase the render distance?

Append a Scene Compositor nodes belong to the Scene settings. You just have to Append a Scene from a blendile containing the compositor setup you want. Go under -> File -> Append, pick the file and look under the Scene folder. Then go to the scene selector, open the compositor in the appended one and copy past the nodes in yours. Remember to update ...

Try using the subdivision surface modifier. I don’t know if shade smooth works in render. Or just in the viewport.

1

You need more subdivisions on the object to appear curved. Here's an object only with smooth shading (rendered image on the right), note that the edges and faces are visible. Here's the same object with smooth shading and a subdivision surface modifier. The curves are smooth. Just for comparison, here's the same object with flat shading. Compare to smooth ...

Start by adding a Bezier Curve. Enter edit mode and select the whole thing with A. Press V + V and then V + L to straighten it and align the handle vectors. Now duplicate the curve with Shift + D, and translate it up a bit on the Z axis. Now duplicate the pair and move it an equal distance away on both the X and the Y axis. Rotate 90 degrees to make the L ...

In user preferences, if you use "Emulate Numpad", it gives the regular 1-0 numbers the same functionality as the Numpad: Of course, if you don't want to go to the trouble of remapping your keys, you can always just select it manually from the view menu:

Fixing the normals of and adding thickness to the glass are the best solutions. Thanks for @Rich Sedman and @Robin Betts's comments. It works by simply setting the IOR value of the window glass to 1.0 or slightly larger (1.45 is the default setting), but it is not a physically correct solution. Check their comments. I am adding this since they didn't post it ...

You will likely get better results by using either the Denoiser or Adaptive Sampling - instead of activating both at the same time. The reason for this is that the Adaptive Sampling feature stops rendering an individual tile when the noise of those samples gets below a threshold, while the denoiser attempts to deal with any noise present over the whole ...

When you render you can see the pixels being updated with new sample information according to the integration method used by the renderer. With adaptive sampling on, every other sample is integrated just like that into a separate image buffer. Every pixel is compared to the corresponding pixel for the final image. When the difference between these pixels ...

It looks like you're using a Subdivision Surface modifier with the viewport level set to 0. When rendered with the Catmull-Clark algorithm this adds extra faces based on the Render setting and interpolates their location.

It might be worth looking here to see if you can recover the previous state of your scene.

Your domain is too big, scale it down as much as possible to just cover expected simulation range in a scene. Something like this ... You use a lot of colliders with very chaotic topology. I would suggest to use one simple that would be faster in simulation and it prevent from leaking water. Bake simulation and for rendering disable this simple collider in ...

Here's a plane: Here's the same plane with a subsurf modifier: Now the object has more vertices instead of the original 4. The subdivision modifier creates new "virtual" geometry, by interpolating the existing edges and faces. The Subdivision Surface modifier (often shorten to “Subdiv”) is used to split the faces of a mesh into smaller faces, ...

This appears to be an issue with the resolution of your render. Try going to the Output Properties tab under the "Dimensions" section and increase the resolution of your render. Also ensure that the resolution % is set to 100 to achieve the maximum quality. When moving around in the viewport, resolution is mainly limited by your monitor or computer ...

You have an object that is hidden in the viewport but not in render, so make it invisible in render too:

Material output can luckily be directed to one or the other rendering engine, so one can easily compensate for the lighting limiations of Eevee by using a different output material on the same shader graph. This helps greatly by not requiring to add and switch materials in the objects, it all happens inside the same material node graph, and also projection, ...

Close to 2 million faces, high levels of subdivision surface modifiers, large textures 2K and 4k... all of that uses resources from your computer and eventually you will run out of them. Read: Why does Blender use so much memory for large textures? Using 4k textures on something that will only be a few hundred pixels tall on the screen is wasteful. Solutions:...

I had a similar problem and it took some time before I found the issue. My area lights did not show anywhere, no matter which viewport/render visibilities and light power values I used. My area light had an x-value of 0, so basically the light only defines a line which apparently can't emit light. So make sure that your area light values define a 2-...

Just roll back to the previous version of your AMD driver. Click on the windows icon Search for Device Manager Dropdown the Display Adapters option click on AMD driver Under the Driver's Tab Roll Back Driver Option And now the Blender is good again.

The default Strenght for the grease pencil is 0.600. To draw dark strokes set it to 1 Additionally you can use an opacity modifier to make existing strokes darker. Read: Edit Grease Pencil Strength?

Every step you listed except for clamping probably helped out. Turning clamping to 0 actually unclamps them completely. You need some value in there, I think indirect is clamped at 10 by default and unclamping it increases render times pretty significantly. It probably wiped out all the gains made by the other methods. As for the memory usage, check your ...

Always use the last AN version, at this time it is animation_nodes_v2_2_windows_py37.zip I also have crashes in 2.91, sometimes after 5 frames rendering, sometimes after 25 frames, so weird, I will check an older Blender version.....okay checking 2.83LTS...rendering for 40 frames now without crashing. Looking good so far! Please try! Freddy

You need to select the filter in your scene view window, and make sure that the camera is enabled. This allows you to make certain objects not render in the viewport. Bonus Tip: If you have many different objects to turn off final render visibility on, select all objects you don't want to be rendered. Set the active object (yellow highlighted) in the scene ...

You first need to correctly realign the object's orientation. To realign the object orientation with its face orientation, select a face of your object in Edit mode, create a custom orientation in the Transform Orientations panel: In the Options panel (top right of 3D view) activate Transform > Affect Only > Origins: In the header menu click on ...

The images used in the workspace are for reference only. Go to compositing workspace, check Use Nodes and thenShift + A > Image Sequence. Then Shift + A > Viewer and connect image sequence to the viewer and Composior node. If the image size doesn't fit, you can try to use Scale node, I am not that sure if that's the right name The basic node setup for ...

My mistake! I had hidden layers that were still turned on in render. So eye hidden and camera still on. Both need to be off, rookie mistake!

I suggest you using openEXR instead of png. go on your image texture node and try to change linear to closest or to cubic Then try putting color ramp in between and choose constant interpolation. btw if you want to make a cirlce procedurally, here is the tree:

@Allen Simpson' s answer inspired me. Now I found the solution by simply setting the IOR value of the window glass to 1.0 or slightly larger (1.45 is the default setting). Here is the result.

The light is getting through, but it's going straight through like a prism because of the light source. In real life the window would be receiving bounced lighting from all directions inside the room. The easiest way to recreate this is probably to bump up the transmission roughness value. Note that while a realistic IOR value would be around 1.5 for most ...

I had this issue for days with Radeon RX 580, today I updated the drivers to 20.12.1 (released in 2020. 12. 04.) and the problem is no more.

Short answer. Re-rendering is your only option. PNG will not save the mist pass, or any other passes. It will only save color and alpha by default. If you need to save multiple layers use OpenEXR multilayer. When you import the rendered image back it will have the corresponding sockets for the layers you saved.

4

You can't just render the mist pass on its own. Blender always renders the combined pass (even if you check it off on the Data passes for the view layer). You will need to render again. Enable mist on the data passes for the view layer Then use the Mist ouptut of the render layer to save your image. What you should do in the future: Avoid PNG and save as ...

Here is a nice explanation video by IBN-Blender 3d Artwork here. From what I understood: Open Image Denoise and NLM are two sorts of denoising modes. OID is faster and doesn't need a high sampling rate, it is ideal for animation. NLM is slower and needs a higher sampling rate, it is ideal for single image. You can use OID either through the Render panel or ...

Given that the question is about resolution. See that slider that shows 35% in the resolution settings? You are rendering an image that is rougly a third of the resolution. Instead of 1200 pixels you are rendering only 420. Set the value to 100% As for why the picture is blurry, there is no information on the question that can yield a conclusive answer. ...

Once you've set the second object as smoke inflow. Delete the second smoke domain. Duplicate the existing somke domain, bring it over the second object. Then you need to delete the cache simulation on the second domain, and re-cache a new one. When you cache Smoke (and other simulations) blender creates VBD files, that control the voxels for simulations. ...

If they are connected to the internet, try Sheepit. If you run their client on each computer they will render for the farm and if you upload a project it will first be rendered on your own hardware so easy to setup, everybody wins. Unless 500MB file size limit is too little for your scenes and you want to use exr output with passes and render layers instead ...

This is what I did: tick "High Quality Normals" in the Render Properties

Try to turn up the clipping distance on your camera. You do this by selecting your camera, then goinh to it's menu over on the very right and turning up the Clip end.

Imagine an image of 140x139 (this one : ) If you import in blender with images as plane addon, with emission or shadeless shader And set your render output to the same resolution and framerate And add an orthographic camera above to the center of your image, with orthographic view [ [ You can adjust the size by zooming a lot in a corner from the camera view ...

In Blender 2.91, all objects take on the color of the World. So even if I have a 1000x bright sun lamp shining on a white cube, the cube is totally black if the World background is black. This is NOT how real lighting works. Blender 2.79 does not have this problem, so it is a bug. Emission makes everything glow a bit, and real things should not have to ...

You need to install NVIDIA drivers separately via flatpak to enable GPU rendering. Run flatpak list in console.

To get a texture on your reflections, you must use Object coordinates. For whatever reason, you also have to select the light ("Light2" in my case) for the Texture Coordinate node so that the light's transforms are transferred to the coordinates in the node tree (usually it's automatic). If you want to keep the coordinate values in $[0,1]$, make ...
