Hello, I’m new to Blender.
I’m wondering about the essential differences between the regular Blender Render and Cycles. I realize that Cycles seems to be able to do a bunch of stuff Blender Render can’t, but is there an ideal use for each? If I had a nearly completed scene that I suddenly decided I wanted to render with Cycles, is there anything I would need to change about the scene?
(I’m assuming there is, because when I changed my settings to Cycles and tried render view it rendered as a black screen)
Another side-question: Is it even possible to render a glass-like or transparent object in Blender Render? I’m having issues.
