Polyline 3D

Hi,
I want to connect points in a 3D view with a line and I use the "morph" tool (method polyline).
Can I view a polyline morph in a render?
Thanks

This may be a silly question, but have you tried?
It is best if you test it to see if what you model is visible as we have no idea of what it is you are trying to see.

Just out of curiosity I had a look.
Cinerender does not show the hard edge of any elements at all (not even walls & slabs).
So a morph surface will show but not the edges, and a morph line will not show at all.

So unless there is a setting I am missing in Cinerender options, it look as though you will have to combine a sketch render (where the lines will show) with a Cinerender.

I use the railing tool as a 3D polyline. That will show in renders.

You could try a very small diameter round beam (complex profile) for horizontal and sloping 'lines' and a small round column for vertical.
