I would like to make a back drop out of a gradient and have it emit the colours in the gradient.
i have it setup as an emission shader and as a colour im using my texture.This doesnt seem to work and it gives me no light or texture at all. how do i make this work?
This can be done purely with nodes, but if you are using an image texture you need to unwrap the plane first. Did you? Failing that post the blend or your node setup. Make sure to choose coordinates uv, and tab back into object mode before test rendering.
