Can't get any lights to work

Postby Jibroni » Mon Oct 22, 2018 12:44 am

:?: :?: :?: Its as if you have to be a professional photographer or something, because the scenes keep rendering pitch black. Is there a tutorial video I can watch that shows me how to get lights to work, or how to illuminate a scene?

Hi.

Have you looked at the included manual? Everything to get started in there. If you can’t figure it out, please provide detailed information about your scene, incxluding screenshots that show the light in place and what types of light that you used. The first step is to start with a completely empty scene, add a cube primitive and a Reality mesh light. In general, you should always start with the Mesh light.

Cheers.
