What have I switch off? or done wrong?

Drawing is fine as soon as I fo to open GL or fast render the drawing goes into darkness apart from the glowing grass.

The light options in view is at 100%

Any ideas please?


Thank you

Hi Paulo,


sorry for delay been caught up in other stuff.

Only in this project, I think. If  change my background it makes it more visible but seems a bit weird I would need to do that.


Thank youCarl

You likely have added Light objects, but have them all turned off, so that disabled the Default Lighting that is included in files by default. You should be able to get around it by either enabling a Light object, or by going to View > Set Lighting Options and increasing the Ambient lighting value, which if my guess is right is near or at 0 for this file.
