    Hi All

    Hope this message finds you well…

    I am creating a video logo and I have a star-field background in the form of a physical sky. And it is fine, but when I dolly in an animation it disappears and turns into a dark blue, with no stars. And it doesn’t change when I take out the sky BG.

    I seems to coincide with when I am tilting up.

    It didn’t bother me that much, it was almost a nice transition, but as I am finishing, I don’t like it.

    So ultimately I would like to know why my sky is disappears and where this solid color is coming from, if anyone may have run into this problem.

    I’m on R-19

    Thanks in advance.

    is something intersecting with the camera maybe? some geo with a ‘glass’ material on or something?

    I don’t think so, but I will check it out. It’s a good thought. There are a lot of glass panels in there.

    Thanks for the response, Andy. I really appreciate it…

    UPDATE: Andy, I took your advice and went thought different layers and oddly enough found it was disk layer that was actually on the ground and not obstructing the camera. I changed one of the material layers and it went away.

    Not exactly sure what is was doing, but thanks for the suggestion… It worked!

    Definitely did.

    Was wondering if you’d know a way to do what the problem was (the background going solid) on purpose. I kind of like the effect. I just didn’t like the color and not having control of it. I was thinking of changing the depth of field, but it’s a 15mm lens so I don’t know if that would work.

    Any regardless. Thanks for your help.
