Default Chrome objects disappear when rendered

Hello, I seem to be having a problem with my chrome objects. Whenever I apply chrome to a certain object and take a render shot, the chromed object disappears from my render.

I've never used chrome before and I'm using the free Student/educational version (2015). I followed a tutorial perfectly and everything works fine except for anything under the mia_materials_x. I have no idea how to fix this.

Do you have an environment? By default the environment will be black and as chrome is very reflective most likely explanation is it's reflecting the black background so it looks like your object is not there. Try putting a env sphere in the scene or an ibl node.
