    Was following along great & then when I rendered I got just black. Is the Dark Studio Template & the Lightdome – Physics Lab part of Strata 7? I’m using 6 until tomorrow, am I missing something?

  2. Dark studio is indeed strata 7. Physics lab reflected environment is not. If you use the physics lab reflected.environment, the render should come out with proper reflections. Are you rendering from a camera view?
