Having issues using geometry caching.  I've got it so that it no longer has to read the whole model before rendering a new scene, however, my output always ends up being a blank canvas.

Any reason I might have overlooked as to why none of my model ends up getting rendered?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Turn of caching.  We don't really know why but caching simply does not work for all models.  We are not sure if it's something in the model, something on your computer that is blocking caching or what. BTW- do you mind uploading your model so we could see if we can duplicate the same thing.

I have had this a couple of times in the beginning of using cached scripts to render.

my problem was that I deleted the very first script that gets generated , because i thought the second generated script would have all that podium needed and It would just need the textures.

Another thing was moving the lower kb scripts (the cached ones) around to different folders.

you have to keep both the first generated script and the rest in the same folder i think.

maybe thats something you did ? just a suggestion

I've had this in a couple of cases, and I have no idea why. It doesn't happen with all scenes, and I can't identify any particular pattern. As Dave says - turn it off if this happens.

What this means, is that you are running Podium V2 instead of V2.5 Plus.

Upgrade to the latest version - it's so much faster, and doesn't have geometry caching.

If there is a reason which means you can't upgrade (you really, really ought to unless you are unable) then turn geometry caching off.
