Black background when render picture

Post by Pepy »

Hi to all!
I wont to ask something. When I press F12 to render picture background (not render window) come black in second and come back again. Sometime background (that is window where is scene for render) stays black until I press end to remove render window.
So does somebody have similar problems
Geforce 2 MX
Win ME
256 MB Ram
And dont tell me download latest drivers from Nvidia- I have latest drivers.
P.S As I can remember only Blender 1.74 doesnot have this problem!

The only time I've ever seen that is when I render single frames with "do sequence". Is that what you're doing too, or something else?
Did you add any lights? :D

EDIT: Just found this: http://www.blender.org/modules.php?op=m ... opic&t=190.
If you're using 2.25 it might be the same bug you've encountered...

Me too. whever I start a general render, the Blender interface goes black until the rendering is done, either for single frames or for sequences :cry:

Meeetooo... My main Blender window goes all WHITE when I'm rendering and minimize/maximize it. It's a bi*ch when solving radiosity! I want to do other stuff as well while Blender is solving, it does take time =), but I can't see any results until I press ESC. Same thing happens in both Blender 2.23 and 2.25.

Rendering or calculating radiosity is not a new thread, so the entire program waits for it being finished. No interface drawing then.

Thats one of the features being discussed, starting a new thread for a rendering, so that you can nicely continue working.

I have a little Python script that does just that. I posted it on Elysiun, but it seems to be down at the moment. I'll try posting the link later.
