The documentation here says

So I followed, setting mine as follows

However, the rendered background is still black instead of white, as below.

What might've gone wrong here? Many thanks in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton Thanks for the prompt help! I did (imgur.com/a/hdlKE), but still black background unfortunately. $\endgroup$ – Sibbs Gambling Nov 14 '16 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried changing all three colors to white? $\endgroup$ – CyberBurst Nov 14 '16 at 17:50
  • $\begingroup$ @CyberBurst Changing ambient color to white makes the object white-ish, and meanwhile the background is still black... $\endgroup$ – Sibbs Gambling Nov 14 '16 at 17:53

    $\begingroup$ So you are using alpha in Shading rollout in BI (you might want to edit question with that). In that case you won't see the background in BI (it's considered as transparent). As to 3rd party viewer - can it preview alpha channel ? In anyway that .png (despite of quite bad interpreting alphas by .png) is transparent in black areas. The animated output should be rendered into image sequence (preferably not png) and overlayed with Alpha Over, not rendered into video directly. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Nov 14 '16 at 22:50

If you would like to view the background in the viewport, in the Properties Tool Shelf (Shown by pressing the "N" key) and under the "Display" tab, check "World Background" enter image description here

Hold down Shift and press Z

This switches to Rendered Viewport shading and Shift+Z is the hotkey that toggles it on and off.

If this does not work, try uploading the .blend file?

In shading section of the render tab in the Properties panel, change the Alpha from Transparent to Sky (little camera icon). I faced the same problem in Blender render.

Change to the cycles render, I'm using blender 2.79b. Only changing the render works for me.
