I downloaded a tutorial blend file.
I wanted to have the same lightning in my own template file, but even I compared those two files they look different.

I disabled the "Sun" so you would only have the world emission light (EEVEE)

Left is "tutorial" file (I would like to have it like this) and Right is my "template" file.

enter image description here


This is the tutorial file:

This is my template file:

What settings (or another system setting??) might I possible look over?

    $\begingroup$ please provide both blend file so we can compare it. Your screenshot doesn't help unfortunately. And please give the good names like "target" and "mytry" or so. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Unfortunately you cut off the top menu of the windows so I can't see the settings. At first glance it looks like the left is in Rendered View mode while the right one is in Material Preview mode. But that's just a guess. $\endgroup$ Nov 10 '21 at 9:18

  • $\begingroup$ @GordonBrinkmann Both screens are in rendered mode. I do not use material preview at all. I will try to upload the 2 files $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Your question was closed because it needed more details for clarification. As you can see in the comments, with the provided information we could all just have guessed and speculated. Btw, you don't have to edit the question to tell you will upload the files. Just edit in the uploaded files. Your question will be re-opened when it contains enough information to solve the problem. $\endgroup$ Nov 10 '21 at 10:34

Your "Template" file

enter image description here

Your "Tutorial" file

Go to Render Properties > Indirect Lightning and Delete Lightning Cache ...

enter image description here

... plus change under Shader Editor > World > Background > Strength to 0.500.

Now both looks the same with Sun enabled ...

enter image description here

To get the same lightning as the "tutorial" file you would have to find original Environmental texture that was used when Indirect Lightning Cache was Baked.

Visually it looks like blenders default "sunrise.exr" file delivered with app ... it has yellowish tint, but it is my guess ... lightning is not from the same direction act.

Note: And I don't think there is a chance to transfer just a Indirect Light Cache to another file ... that probably dent make a sense since this cache is based od current 3Dscene setup.
