"Getting the right files

"Before we get started, we need a scene to work with. There are three scenes provided for our use—an outdoor scene, an indoor scene, and a hybrid scene that incorporates elements that are found both inside as well as outside. All these files can be downloaded from

"The file we are going to use for this scene is called exterior.blend. This scene contains a tricycle, which we will light as if it were a product being promoted for a company.

"To download the files for this tutorial, visit and select exterior.blend.

"Blender render settings

"In computer graphics, a two-dimensional image is created from three-dimensional data through a computational process known as rendering. It's important to understand how to customize Blender's internal renderer settings to produce a final result that's optimized for our project, be it a single image or a full-length film. With the settings Blender provides us, we can set frame rates for animation, image quality, image resolution, and many other essential parts needed to produce that optimized final result."
