Black Section on Render

More embarassing questions.

When I render my scene (w/ just a basic F12) it is graced with a large black border at the top. The portions are just about like this:

______________|
______________|
|
|
|
______________|

with the black bit being between the top two horizontal lines.

Any suggestions?

maybe you have a large black plane in front of the camera. :wink:

possibly you have the ‘border’ button pressed?

This has happened to me before. And when you hit F12 to re-render that part of the screen has psycodelic colors?
For some reason (usually metaballs but sometimes when the screensaver kicks in) it stops rendering and leaves you with the results of the primary calculations in that section. Solved it by increasing the amount of virtual memory.
