I made a cloth animation that plays back through the timeline, but when I go to render it… it does not render out… the physics will not play. Instead I just see the mesh as a solid. I used the new ‘Cloth’ option in blender 2.48a.
Is “enable modifier during rendering” clicked on?
I do not think so… that’s probably why. Where is this button?
Edit: Correction, it is enabled and it still is not rendering…
have you baked your animation (Cloth Collision panel)
Yes, it is baked.
Here is the blend: File Removed
Note: Please do not use in your own projects… this is for help purposes only.
I’m using SVN, but by putting the subsurf mod under the cloth mod and selecting AVI/Jpeg output, (and re-baking) I had no problem rendering your project.
… be sure to select the same subsurf-level for preview and render in the subsurf modifier. See also here: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Manual/Cloth “troubleshooting”

You did it! Thank you very much. Once I moved the subsurf under the cloth it worked… (and baked the animation a million times faster).
I appreciate it very much.
