When using animated clouds, they disappear both in the preview and also in the final render.
Then I excluded the cloud control effect, and the clouds didnt disappear in the preview window. I rendered the movie, and when I checked the final video, even the static clouds disappeared/flickered.
May this be a memory issue? I ask because I was testing, and while the static clouds were visible in the preview (even if they disappeared when rendering), they would 100% disappear when adding the STREAKS effect.
Maybe its realted to the field of view of the camera?? It seems the clouds disappearance when far away from origin point is related to angle/movement of the camera.
