I have created a resteraunt with a lot of wood trim and posts. It looks how I want in every view besides the renderings because one certain material that many objects have in common will not show the correct color or material. I have taken Birch Wood and changed it to suit my needs of color and texture, and that is the only one i am having a problem with. It is not an AccuRender, it is a basic material. Have any of you had this problem, if so please help.

Is this a material that you added to the library yourself?  Have you moved the material library or render the project on a different computer?  If you'll notice under Settings >> Options >> Rendering all of the available material libraries are defined there.  If that material is not found at any of those locations it will not render properly come rendering time.


When I had this problem on a project before, the only way I could get it to render properly was to recreate the material in the material library.  Let us know if you find another solution.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
