RFRK 2013 Lightwave Render issues

Postby Borgu » Wed Jul 03, 2013 1:23 am

I'm working on a animation using Lightwave and Realflow 2013. I got all the simulations done, everything is ready to render. The problem is RFRK is freaking out on batch renders. I can render frames individually fine, but when I start a batch render it renders the first frame fine but every subsequent frame is messed up. It appears like the subsequent frames are losing transparency for some reason.

In the renders below I am using a Dielectric material for the fluid, but I've tried an old-school transparent surface with some reflectivity and I get the same results. Tried different types of radiosity, etc.

I meshed everything and didn't get the render issues...but the RFRK renders look WAY better and are much faster.

Anybody know what might be going on?

If you've not already, I suggest going to the official forum. There seem to be very few of us Lightwavers here and the Render Kit for Lightwave is brand new.

The few times I've tried the Render Kit has been frustrating just to get the basics. I've not even thought about doing a batch.

Good luck,

Just using the learning edition here. It sounds like you need to own the full version to post on the official forums.

Not at all. I've got the LE too and I post there occasionally. You have to create an account but its free.

When I login to the RealFlow forums there is no way to post. No post or reply buttons. When I enter a forum (Lightwave for example) I see the following at the bottom right portion of the screen.

There is a section in the "customer gateway" where you can apply for a status upgrade in the official forum if you have already registered there (in case this also applies for LE users).
RF10 standard + RFC4D
