almost a complete beginner here. I'm trying to render my object with a lightsource but the light does not render.

I used a Point Light, placed it right on top and turned the Energy and Falloff all the way up but it still doesnt illuminate my object.

If i do a new project and add lights they work as supposed to.

Any ideas what i might have messed up during the process?

Thx in advanceenter image description here


That's because you are in material shading in blender render (the option to the right of the file bar). Change to cycles render and then try switching to any other option in viewport shading.
