Zach Hixson (zachThePerson) added a comment to T79795: Linked library override object "swallows," other object in same collection, seemingly at random..

I'm still trying to create an example file. Actually, what I've been doing is saving a new file between every step, so that when it does happen I'll be able to compare and submit both the broken step and the step before it. The main reason I posted here was in case anybody else had a similar issue, it could be merged or me and the other person might be able to work together to figure out how to reproduce it.

I've spent the last couple of days trying to reproduce it, but that's what makes it frustrating: It's happened in every one of my freelance projects since I started using overrides (maybe 4 projects over the last 10 months or so), but when I try to deliberately reproduce it I can't seem to find the right combination of actions to make it occur. Everything seems to work fine until one day I glance over and a chunk of the machine is just gone.

Zach Hixson (zachThePerson) added a comment to T79430: Setting Eevee motion blur shutter to high values causes animation render to only render one frame.

Even using the file you uploaded I still can't render out the animation with CTRL + F12 or cmd. It renders out 1 frame (same as when I tested it originally) and then stops as if it completed the entire animation.

I've been running into the same problem, and also found that rendering from the command line fixes crashing when using motion blur.

Zach Hixson (zachThePerson) added a comment to T77287: Cycles render broken on Nvidia p106-100 rig, but renders fine on other machine. .

The plane scaled to 0 bit would explain a lot, and why it only affects those two render layers. I'll try moving it out of the way instead and see if that fixes it for the time being. The holdout plane was there to save on render time, so that way time wasn't wasted on render layers when they weren't going to be used anyways.

I assume 100 meters is far enough to encompass both of these spheres, but the issue still persists with metallic objects. Sphere on left has glossy shader, sphere on right is non-metallic principled shader.

It doesn't seem to save in the file, so I'm afraid it's impossible to send. After some googling it seems that Library overrides of materials aren't supported yet, so it might have just been a button that the devs forgot to gray out.

I cannot seem to reproduce this from a clean project file. At the time of posting I could reliably reproduce this from the full project file (which is much to large to upload), but now I can't seem to reproduce it there either. Could have been fixed in the new preview build, or maybe it was a one time boogeyman.

@Enzio Probst (enzio) I agree, sorry for not clarifying: The behavior is definitely not correct, I was just posting my observation to possibly help lead developers do the solution.

@Enzio Probst (enzio) correction, after playing around with it it seems that the filter icon for "Collections," and "Objects," are combined, and clicking it multiple times toggles between the two.

Never mind, I'm just really blind. I'm used to it in 2.79 being on the left side, and not only did it move to the right side, but the default background color is almost the same color as the node so it didn't look like it was there. Sorry

Ok, after doing "blender --factory-startup" and enabling addons one by one, it seems like a bug with Animation Nodes. What was throwing me off was something very similar to this happened before I installed Animation Nodes, so I didn't think of checking it this time.

It works, but every attempt to – Deselect all (alt-a) / Click on any object in front of another – cycles between the involved objects.
