Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi!

Hi and welcome to Answerhub :)

You see that red text at the top left? That literally is telling you what is wrong with the scene. You are using static lighting and you therefore need to build lighting. In the main menu UI you have a button called Build, click on the arrow next to it and then click on Build lighting only. This may take some time but after that it should work!

Cheers

Ok, to help you further you need to tell us what is actually not working. To me it looks like they are casting some light on furnitures, and on the wall, maybe just not in the intended way?

Please reply with some more information regarding what is not working!
