Default Playblast particles

Hi everyone...

I've done a proyect and I have some fire particles in it, but I'can see them whit the real texture, I just see them like green circles.

Can someone let me a hand and tell me how to capture this particles texture in my playblast??

thanks.

A playblast does not actually "render" your scene, it merely renders your chosen viewport via openGL so you can test your animation timing, composition, etc.

To see your particles you must batch render your scene via the software/harware renderer or Mental Ray, depending on your particle type.

In your case software cloud

Good luck.
