I have a simple problem to solve as the noob that I am (so your patience is very much appreciated.) I just want to add a plane that is the size of my image.png, render and output a .h file for use in obj-c. I have started with C-x to get a clean model; I added a plane which i scaled to the size of my image in px; I added a texture from the F6 menu as an image (set to be a still image, which now has an IM: name); I render and get a blue screen. What have I missed?
This is a great video and I have studied in a good detail. By doing so, I was able to pick up a lot about blender that has gotten me very much further along–thanks! There is no longer an object-face mode in 2.49; I think it is linked automatically. Thanks for the quick reply.
