Newbie Rendering Question

Hey Everyone,

First off, I'm an admitted newbie with MAYA, but I'm learning.

I'm think I'm trying something simple. I have imported one of the test OCEAN scenes from MAYA. All I want to do is to have text come out of the water. I created the text, keyframed the movement and within the editor, it looks great.

If I try and render one of the frames where the text is being shown, the "render" just shows the ocean, not the text. Why is that? I have done nothing more than actually "type" the text and move it for keyframing. Do I need to assign a HYPERSHADE to it?

I'm sure I'm missing something really simple. Please help.

Thanks everyone.
