Attack of the Blob!
show user profile  ChillyWilly
Help! The Blob is attacking my renderings!Has anyone ever seen anything like this? Model View:, Rendered View:
. In the model view nothing appears to be there, it only shows up in the rendered image. My renderings are being haunted! Can anyone help with this?
Things I've tried: Deleting the table, chairs & chandelier that were in the scene, changing cameras, changing camera location, restarting the program, restarting the computer then restarting the program, looking for the Blob in other views.
I imported the table, chairs and chandelier from some website. I wonder if one of them sabotaged my model somehow.
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas please let me know
Thanks all...

I don't see anything wrong. It must be a renderer curse, I've heard about that once

Maybe it's to do with your lighting. Turn off all the lights and see if those white blobs on the roof disappear.

Call paranormal investigators!

On a serious note, press H and see if theres blob in the list. If not hidden object then maybe it has flipped normals and backface cull enabled. Try deleting some objects and see if the render is still haunted.

Thanks guys, yes I've tried turning on & off hidden objects. And I would try flipping normals & enabling BC...if there was an object there to modify. Again, it only shows up in rendered view, not in model view. There's nothing there! I like the idea of having a pet blob though. I just wish I could train it to stay out of the dining room!
Thanks for the feedback all. Let me know if you have any more ideas.

Also, I will now try deleting some objects to see if that works. Thanks Sangre...
