Hello everyone, I’m following the gingerbread man tutorial that’s in the user manual: (http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Your_First_Animation/1.A_static_Gingerbread_Man) and I’m having a little trouble getting my render to look like theirs. I don’t know if they’ve adjusted some of the settings or what, but my render ends up looking really dark and crappy. I remember I had this problem the last time I was learning blender, I’d be following a tutorial and once the we started lighting stuff mine would always look crappy. Anyway, here’s what it’s supposed to look like:
And here’s what mine looks like:
You can see how it’s really dark. I tried adjusting the energy on the spot lamp up to 5 and it helped with the brightness, but everything was kind of washed out and the shadow was all jaggedy.
If anyone can help I’d be grateful, like I said, I can never seem to get lighting to work right in any version of Blender. Thanks.
