Render not the same as what is in camera viewport
show user profile  enem77

I am rendering an animation where the camera is following a missile which is a particle flow shape instance, I have set keys for the camera to keep the missile in view, in camera viewport the missile is always in view but when i render it, halfway through the animation the missile goes off camera, i have checked frames thoughout the animation and its always in sync in the camera viewport but for some reason goes out of sync when rendering.

Any help would be much appreciated as im racking my brain trying to figure out why this is happening.

thanks for reply, yeh safe frames is on, i just figured out why, my PF Source > modify tab > System Management theres a Viewport and Render value, the Render value was set to Half while the viewport was set to frame, i set the render value to frame and now everythings in sync!! woot woot (after 2 hrs).

Im going to make a $5 paypal donation to myself, thanks norm, yor the best!! :P

You definitely rendering the same camera viewport as well as looking at it?

Is the render percentage value at 100% in the modify panel?

[edit] ah too slow you worked it out

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

just remember where that came from, i was watching the Onion movie yesterday, right at the end theres a scene where two women are battering up kittens in breadcrumbs and throwing them into boiling oil. hilarious but totally unrelated to the thread tho nevermind..
