I'm not sure I have explained what is happening correctly.
When I render an image in Paper space the Render uses the "Raytrace Fine" Render even when I choose "Global Illumination Fine"
The lights are all off and there is no illuminance turned on at all.
Darrell, thank you for the tip about not using Paper space, I have been doing it that way since I started, hahaha the training video told me to so I did hahahah, anyway I have been doing it the way you said and using "save as PNG" as well and I have not had any issues with the render not being correct so thank you very much for that
and its saving me so much time not waiting on the Paper space rendering
So I was playing around a little and I found my problem!!!!
I noticed that if I have "Raytrace Fine" selected as the "Quality" render within the Model space and the go to the Paper Space I chose "Global Illumination Fine" it only gives me the "Raytrace Fine" however if i go back into model space and change that to be the "Global
Illumination Fine" and go back to paper space a refresh the screen it gives me the correct chosen "Global Illumination Fine" that I have selected. Stupid!! If you choose a desired render that is what you should get whatever is chosen on another space.
