Black screen when rendering smoke in 2.69


I have looked everywhere on tutorials about simulating smoke I copy the method accurately.

When they render lovely smoke appears, when I render a black screen appears:mad:.

Has anyone had this same issue? Is it a bug or some setting I might be missing?


ok it is a bug in blender tried an older version and it worked.

I have a new issue. It renders fine but I want to have a smoke shot towards the screen with light shooting through with an transparency I dont want the background. Using blender render. Problem is that the background shows and the plane that it emits from. How do I do this? Thanks
