I made a character and put it into a movie my daughter shot. It’s just a skull with a cape. Every scene went fine except the very last part of the last scene. the skull character dies and the cape breaks up into little pieces and blows away. When I hit alt-a or bake I get this result:
but when I hit the animation button, I get this:
I can’t figure out why it’s rendering something completely different from the preview. The only theory I had was that it was because I made a bunch of duplicates of the original cape, cut them up and just kept the parts I wanted. In the past I’ve encountered errors when duplicating objects, but usually I make them single user and everything works fine. In this case, that doesn’t seem to help.
Here’s the blend file:
If anyone could take a look and figure out what went wrong it would be greatly appreciated.
