hey guys,
I'm getting black shapes in my 3d preview window when RTP is active, they lock to the screen (move with the view) and I'm not sure whats causing them. Its a fairly simple scene and I'm pretty sure I don't have any projection cams locked in or anything... any pointers welcome!
Thanks, Kent

Hi Kent. What shader are you using on the object? I recently found a bug with transparent materials in the RTP which sometimes had this effect. It might also affect reflective materials.
Just because milk is white doesn't mean that clouds are made of milk.

Hi Matt,

I have a simple scene with four Easy Clouds and an Atmosphere.

Matt

Ah, in that case can you send an example scene to the support email (or post it here)?

Thanks!

Hi Matt, I can't recreate the black shapes when the files are re-opened. I'll keep poking around and if I can get the app back into that state consistently I'll send it along. Otherwise I'll just assume it was a momentary glitch. :-)
Thanks for your attention!

Matt

If it happens again, please do. Thanks!
