    Just getting used to the software, but having lots of problems with rendering. They just look terrible, very jaggy and not realistic at all. I am having to take screen shots of virtuual view to send to clients, which is an improvement on previous programs, but not by much. Updated my graphics driver, which helped with virtual views, although there are times when 2/3 of the screen is dark, solved by returning to the wireframe a couple of times. Any thoughts?

    Attached is the computer hardware summary.

    Hello Rand,

    The video card has nothing to do with rendering, so while it's good that you updated to the latest driver, it will not help here. The 'quality' of your renderings depends on both your render settings and on how well you've lit your scene... If you haven't added any lighting, or enough lighting, simply using Ambient Light will result in rather flat and "unrealistic" images, as you say; if they are also "jaggy", this could indicate that you are not using any Antialiasing (which is set in the last step of the Render Wizard). The following tutorials should help with all this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj6zoYEmkIk and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMgifeIKjtU.


    Regards,
