I was working in this project, a 20sec clip of a box floating in the air. I used 3d camera tracking, lots of 3d layers and a Element 3D asset.
It was all working fine until i was about to finish it and hit render. When suddenly the preview window started showing only a black screen, and when i hit spacebar it render absolutely nothing. The timeline doesn't even move or anything.
I've searched a lot trying to fix this. Did everything i could find. Even downgraded the software. But even then, it would not show anything.
I'm using CC 2021, with Element 3D.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor 3.40 GHz

Error or problem, Freeze or hang, Performance, Preview
I'd completely forgotten about those cache buttons
It might be worth checking your texture sizes too. Element might appear to handle large image resolutions, but at crunch time, when it needs to render at highest quality, I've had black screens. I think it's caused by the GPU crashing Element.
