So in the Blender Render here, we have our Blender Render options here, and as we…change it to the Cycles Render, you can see how these parameters change.…Now one of the cool things about the Cycles Renderer is that it is an…Interactive Renderer.…If I go here to the Render Method, you can see how I've got a number of…different options here and these will change depending upon the Renderer you have selected.…
