I am having trouble with photorendering certain views that I have set up. Recently, for reasons I do not know why particular views I have set up and rendered a thousand times now appear blue and green in the viewpoint and when I render. Some of the views I have saved do this and some do not, I have gone through the settings of the ones that do this and the ones that don't meticulously and cannot find out what is causing this.
Has anyone come across this before and able to help?
Thank you for your reply. I unfortunately won't be able to share the pln file. Could you please advise me on how I would go about adjusting the ambience, how to add an orange artificial light and how to check the emission colours of the surfaces used. Thanks
The problem is not so much the surface settings as the lighting settings of your render 'scene' and the time of day.
This is why Christophe asked for a file so he can quickly go over all these settings (I assume).

I tried rendering on the preset outdoor settings and I get the same blue screen! I pasted all the elements into an older model (not including lights) that I know renders fine, however once I have pasted in all the elements I am still getting the blue screen!
So it is something in the model that is making it do this?? Any ideas please this is driving me crazy!
No there is not. I forensically went through the file to see if there were any elements that was causing the blue render appearance, and once the paving element to the ground plane was deleted it renders fine! Very very weird as this ground plane has been in the model for months and never caused any issue...
If you do a render with just the ground plane, does it still render blue? If so, you could just select the ground plane, then go File => External Content => Save Selection as Module => Uncheck "Replace Selection" => File - .pln. This should create a copy of the selected elements in a new file with the same template and attributes which you would then be able to share?
