Is there a way to make Cycles Render the default in Blender instead of Blender Render? (I hope this hasn't been asked before.)
Here are the steps to do that.
- Open Blender.
- Change the Render Engine to Cycles in the pull down menu (top center)
- Then go to File - Save Startup File.
Thats it. Next time you start with a new file, it is gonna be Cycles Engine by default.
