First of all, hello, a great website I must admit
Downloaded "the basic human form" tutorial at first and while I was messing around with it I decided to give a break (believe it or not I've been doing that tutorial for 5 days now and I'm still at part 3.. you can call me stupid:/)
So I downloaded the bouncing ball animation tutorial which was great. and then watched the rendering tutorial because I had no clue about rendering an animation.
and here's my problem, I've done everything that's been said in that Rendering tutorial and it seems I'm still doing something wrong...
I tried rendering the animation using the options Maya Software, Maya Hardware, Maya Vector and mental ray and each time I got images that were sort of... oh well I'll upload one
the black area is the area in which there are objects.
I've tried several formats.. tga, PSD, png, tif and quicktime movie.. the tga, PSD, png and tif image looks like the above one and the quicktime movie is the video form of the above image in colors red and green.
if anyone could help me solve this problem, I'd be really grateful. I'm sure its just some silly box I haven't checked somewhere or sth like that. but I can't find what it is and its driving me mad
thank you for your time.
edit: and sorry if this same problem has been posted before but I searched around and couldn't find anything like this.
