I’m pretty new to Blender and 3D animation, I only started about maybe 2 months ago for an FBLA project, and I’ve followed a lot of tutorials. I just finished making this island using the landscape add on, and I only just made the final render, and to my surprise it has completely changed from the render that I saw when looking at it through objective mode. I have 2 textures, a sand and grass texture, and then a face mask to tell the sand where to be, and then an ocean using glass and gloss nodes. I also used a particle system for trees. I just finished animating it all and when I did the final render, the island is hovering above the ocean and has lost all textures, and the particle system also disappeared. The buildings that are still standing are buildings that I placed myself.
This is what the island is suppose to look like
