Lighting & Render problems


New member

I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on my problem !.

I have created a scene with some objects and a number of photometric lights (targetted spotlights) with a chosen lm intensity value.

When i am working or navigating within the viewports the scene indicates lighting effects on the objects. The problem is when i render the scene normally using a scanline renderer then no lighting effects are shown and the scene and objects are in darkness. Why would it display lighting effects in the viewports but none using the renderer ?

I have increased the light intensity by 10000000% and then the spotlight starts to illuminate the objects in the scene.

Any help would be gratefully received.
