    3D Scene changes to black ?

    StrongBeaver Level 3

      My scene has two lights in 3D view and loads with the object lit up, none other then by the lights, but while working, the object in the scene turns completely black ?

          So I guess you also want us to work in the dark too by showing us nothing and writing you see black.  We can even see your black.

            All you had to say was a screen shot would be helpful.  A basic understanding of a scene that renders in black, would mean there are no lights in the scene, yet there are lights in the scene.

              Just ran across this thread, don't know why I did not see it yesterday. I think you may have caught JJ on a bad day.  In his defense, there are quite a few new users that don't know what a screen grab is. Not much of an excuse, but if you have seen how many people are asked to show a screen grab, you may get an idea why he is a bit off above.

               

              The FAQ should have told you that you should provide a screen grab along with the pertinent details of your system.

               

              Anyway glad you figured it out.

                With users who have been posting on these Fora for a couple of years one might be tempted to assume they are aware of the connection between the information provided and the quality of help that can be offered.

                  You messed up and have been here long to know better, so take your knocks, or remain mystified why JJ and others are suddenly no longer answering your questions.

                    Whatever, I could care less whether JJ answers my questions or not.

                      And how do you feel about other Photoshop users who may come to this Forum looking for a solution to this specific problem?

                        Are you implying there is no answer to the problem, for others ?

                          In post 3 you stated

                           

                          Solved !

                           

                          but did not elaborate on how you solved the issue, as far as I can tell.

                            Be kind to your community

                            As in any community, mutual respect and cooperation are key elements to success. The community consists of people from different countries, cultures, and beliefs, with varying levels of expertise. Write comments in an unbiased and respectful manner. Be straightforward and sincere, and assume good faith. Good faith is about intentions, so keep in mind that well-meaning people make mistakes.

                             

                            Personal insults, verbal attacks, and generally disrespectful, offensive, or abusive messages will be edited or deleted by forum moderators.

                            Adobe's vision for community forums

                            • One-to-many response strategy
                            • Content is finadable and reusable
                            • Leverage community expert content outside of Adobe domains
                            • Answers include visuals (for example, screenshots) when appropriate

                             

                            Participating and rating content

                            The Adobe expert communities make it easy for you to both find answers and share your knowledge and expertise on a particular topic with other users. You can participate in Adobe communities if you have an Adobe ID.  We encourage you to contribute content, answer questions, or comment with corrections, clarifications, tips, and more. Links to your favorite resources or expert videos could help other community members.  You can rate existing content by marking replies as Helpful.  For more on ratings and earning your own points, see "Join the Experts". Choose the best location for your discussionWhile it may be tempting to post a question in the first forum you come across, posting in the forum that's most closely related to your concern is your best chance to get a quick and correct answer. Many communities have highly targeted sub-forums.

                            Supply pertinent information for quicker answers

                            The more information you supply about your situation, the better equipped other community members will be to answer. Consider including the following in your question:

                            • Adobe product and version number
                            • Operating system and version number
                            • The full text of any error message(s)
                            • What you were doing when the problem occurred
                            • Screenshots of the problem
                            • Computer hardware, such as CPU; GPU; amount of RAM; etc.

                             

                            Report bugs and submit product feature requests/feedback

                            Although you will encounter many supportive and like-minded professionals (including a variety of Adobe representatives), the Adobe communities are not the correct place to report software bugs or post suggestions on commercial products and services. To suggest changes, report software bugs, or submit feedback about Adobe products, see Supporthttp://www.adobe.com/support or Contact.

                            Here are the user roles in the Adobe community:


                             

                            Anonymous: Any visitor who views the site but is not logged in. Anonymous visitors can browse, search, and ask questions, but they cannot interact with content or with other users.

                            Moderators: Product experts inside or outside Adobe. Moderators are promoted from the larger pool of registered members. They can add new posts and replies, moderate comments, facilitate discussions, and mark answers Helpful or Correct. They can also edit and delete posts, especially in the interest of removing spam. Moderators demonstrate and promote positive community values, such as good faith, respect, and cooperation, and encourage users to share their expertise and improve the Adobe community experience.


                             

                            Administrators: Product experts who have access to internal systems and processes, such as product managers and technical support leads.

                              This is priceless. JJMack, there are a few things you could follow from those rules. How about you do me a favour, when you see a question I post, don't reply, I would appreciate it. I hope you can follow that rule !

                                I think this means that a thread is intended to ideally provide help to other people faceing the same/similar problems in the future.

                                  I have repeatitly seen users here bend over backwards to try to help you out.  Your come backs have always been rude and you claim to know things you don't. For someone asking for help you attitude is as you wrote is priceless...  you have attitude problem and have been told that in the past too.

But then besver has no right to make rules around here but be assured I have seen many of his  appends and not responded because of your attitude.  I'm sure othes have done the same and will continue to ignore you. Its just what the beaver deserves. Not a fight its how I view you.

                                                Strongbeaver, you seem to miss one important point of this Forum.

                                                 

                                                It’s not only about helping you or any other person starting a thread with a request for help.

                                                It’s intended to also help others that may at some future time be confronted with the same or a similar issue.

                                                And you stating »Solved« does fall short in that respect.

                                                 

                                                Don’t worry, posting how you solved this problem is unlikely to help any of the people who annoyed you in this thread, but it may help some other users who do a Forum search of a web search.

                                                  800+ posts and 5 points in 5 years.  Wow.

                                                   

                                                  It never ceases to amaze me how entitled some folks seem to feel.  There have been several over time here who just take and do not attempt to give back.  It's disappointing to see, really.

                                                   

                                                  For those who feel StrongBeaver is falling short of his/her responsibility to help others, just keep in mind what goes around comes around.  One day he/she will REALLY need help - with something that matters - and no one will step up.  He/she is literally asking that experts avoid answering.  I suggest we take him/her up on that suggestion.
