on the left is what appears when i press "numpad0." it shows what the camera is pointing at.
on the right is what i get when i render. it seems to be the inside of my model.
the last time this happened, i easily solved it by selecting the camera and pressing "ctrl+numpad0," making it the camera.
this time, i've tried every combination of selecting either object and ctrl+numpad0, to no avail.
it just annoys me how little things like this ruin my workflow.
