iOS 8 - Screen blank after dismissing view controller with custom presentation

When dismissing various view controllers using

UIModalPresentationCustom
, the screen turns black after the view controller is dismissed, as if all the view controllers had been removed from the view hierarchy.

The transitioning delegate is set properly, the animationControllerForPresentedController is asked for and passed correctly, and the transition is completed once the animation is over.

This exact code works perfectly when compiled with the iOS 7 SDK, but is broken when compiled with iOS 8b5

Answer

This is because you are most likely adding both the presenting

[transitionContext viewControllerForKey:UITransitionContextFromViewControllerKey]

and the presented

[transitionContext viewControllerForKey:UITransitionContextToViewControllerKey]

view controllers to your containerView in the (void)animateTransition:(id )transitionContext method of your animation controller. Since you are using a custom modal presentation, the presenting view controller is still shown beneath the presented view controller. Now since it's still visible you don't need to add it to the container view. Instead only add the presented view controller to the containerView. Should look something like this inside of your animateTransition: method

UIView *containerView = [transitionContext containerView];
UIViewController *fromViewController = [transitionContext viewControllerForKey:UITransitionContextFromViewControllerKey];
UIViewController *toViewController = [transitionContext viewControllerForKey:UITransitionContextToViewControllerKey];

// Boolean value to determine presentation or dismissal animation
if (self.presenting){        
    [transitionContext.containerView addSubview:toViewController.view];
    // Your presenting animation code
} else {
    // Your dismissal animation code
}
