Error rendering - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/671816/blender/hbd/hbdchynna1.blend
M = move from local view?
what does this mean? I may have accidentally used an add-on that does something funky. The layers panel is missing and I don’t know where my lamps are . in hbdchynna1.blend
I appended all the data to a new blend file and that half fixed the problem - the lamps showed up, the layers worked, but I still had stuff missing.
specifically taper and taper.001
if you go into the outliner and select them, they are no where to be found - you can select them in the outliner, but not the 3dview.
I was trying cycles out before this - it didn’t render nicely, so I switched back to the blender renderer… but surly that couldn’t have caused loss of data… could it?
I ended up settling for what I had and it turned out fairly nicely.
but I think there’s some loss/ missing references going on if I can’t find certain parts of the data
1. why can’t a good render be taken from the first blender file ? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/671816/blender/hbd/hbdchynna1.blend
1.1 what happened to the layers panel in this blend file?
2. what happened to the data links to taper and taper.001? why can’t I find them in the 3d view?
