How to render your items in a photorealistic image
- The open tab needs to be set to Photoreal (A)
- Adjust the camera angle and zoom level in the preview (D) if desired:
- Hold the left mouse button and drag to pan the camera, (or hold Shift and use any mouse button)
- Hold the right mouse button and drag to rotate the model, (or hold Ctrl and use any mouse button)
- Use the mouse wheel to zoom in or out
- You can use the button in the top right corner of the image to recenter the model
- Click Render (H)
- Choose a file name for your image and where you want it saved.
- The render will start and show a preview.
Closing the preview window will stop the render and it won’t be saved.
- When the render is done, the preview closes automatically, and the image is opened.
See Eyesight options for more info about rendering with Eyesight.
- The camera angle and zoom in the viewport is used as the default for rendering.
- Studio has special colors for renders:
- Rubber: colors are matte and don’t reflect light. They imitate the rubber material of LEGO tires and rubber bands.
- Glowing Neon, Luminous Soft, Luminous, Translucent, and Glow in Dark: These colors emit light, from a low glow to more luminous effects. You’ll need to lower the ambient light to see their lighting effects.
