Render Helpers ?
show user profile  Cylon 2
Just a quick question guys, I need to do a quick breakdown of one of my characters, and I'd like to show the rig set up. I can render the bones, but not the helpers. Is there any way to do this ?

Thanks in advance :)

I would go with rendering a preview. There it can be visible.
I talk about this:,topicNumber=d30e442101

If you still want the bones shaded/rendered, you can make a composite.

Yeah, I think if he`d like to attach geometry, he would have done that.
By the way, Isn`t that already a little bit too fancy?

I'm so glad you let that loop 11 times with sappy music.

What's with the bone above the clavicle?

Also to stay on topic, if your helpers are splines you can just set them to be renderable, otherwise I'd go with the rendering preview approach as suggested.
