Hello I am relatively new to blender and have exhausted every outlet for advice that I can on this subject to no avail. So I am reaching out to you. I have imported a vector file of a logo with some text from Inkscape into blender and have converted it into a mesh and animated it. The scene is lit, the camera is properly placed, however when I go to render it the screen is all black (in blender render) and in cycles render it is all gray. I have tried a lot of things to fix this but none have worked. Do you have any suggestions?

EDIT This is the link to my .blend file Render settings

    $\begingroup$ It's hard to tell without more information. Please edit your question and show images of your render settings, materials and lighting. Look at the possible causes of blank rendering and see if any apply in your case: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/53632/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ And by the way blender and cycles materials are not interchangeable. $\endgroup$

Select all objects with A
Go in the Object Tab, in duplication panel and Alt+Click on "none"
click

You also need to change your point light color (black light won't give anything).
result with white light
render

First your sun is black, so make it white and you will have lighting (you will see your plane. Not sure about the logo though.

To take a cropped screenshot, at least on a pc, search snipping tool in the search box on the start menu, then it should allow you to draw a box around what you want to capture and then copy that to your clipboard.
