You know how at the start of this I said it might be something incredibly newbish?

Well.. I bought another training book this weekend, one which inlucded the cruicial line that no other book so far had said...

"IPR is a photo realistic test render for previews. In order to render fully go to the render menu.. " etc etc....

Yes, I thought that IPR was full render and the little button next to it was preview...

Sorry folks

Is it rendering ok now?

Dont worry about it, when I started I got so confused when I was trying to find things (like getting nurbs, polys and subd's mixed up!)

Cheers

Yes looks a lot better, the shadows still look jagged, but Ipresume this is a shadow setting rather than a render issue
