Okay. Let me describe in detail what I would like to achieve.

I have created a 3d scene that I would like to render so I can use it in my point-and-click adventure game as a background.

I know how to add a camera and set it to ortho and I can set the rendering to 640w 180h but when I renderer it looks pixelated (maybe 300w 80h) which might be because it uses a wrong resolution?

Is there a tutorial explaining what I need to do?

Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ Did you make sure the percentage under the resolution is at 100%? $\endgroup$ – someonewithpc Jul 4 '16 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ it is 100%. Funny thing is also that blender starts to render the objects black but without me touching the lights. I then tried to move objects around to see if it was my lightning that there was something wrong with but when rendering it was the same image as before I moved. Weird. $\endgroup$ – kasperba Jul 4 '16 at 13:14
  • $\begingroup$ It would probably be helpful if you posted some more information like screenshots of your 'pixelated result' and blender settings $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jul 4 '16 at 16:46

First of all, make sure your render resolution slider is set to 100%, Also, (forgive me if I'm mentioning the obvious here), but If you're rendering in Cycles, you need to set your sample-count higher, as that may be what's causing the "pixelated" look. A good starting point should be something like 500 samples. See below:

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. it is 100% :-) $\endgroup$ – kasperba Jul 4 '16 at 13:16
  • $\begingroup$ still pixelated? how about your sample count? $\endgroup$ – Rico Cilliers Jul 4 '16 at 13:33
  • $\begingroup$ A question that was totally overlooked.... What reender method are you using? Are you just going to the render mode of the 3D viewer for a quick render, or are you using the render context panel and doing a full render? $\endgroup$ – Anthony Forwood Jul 4 '16 at 20:49
  • $\begingroup$ @kasperba To get a satisfactory answer please edit your question and add images of your current render setting, samples settings or other information that might help those who are trying to help you. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jul 4 '16 at 23:54
