I am not sure if this is a bug, a feature, a Mac bug, or just a Lightwave problem. Any way, here is an image with the problem in the red circle. The reflection is being generated by a background image. The results are not the smooth image reflection, I was hoping for, instead it seems to be blocky. I believe I got the same results with spherical reflection.

Here is the Environmental settings that were used.

Here are the rendering settings. Any suggestions?

Try tripling your mesh.

I get weird edge renderings on surfaces when I sometimes have non-planar polys.
I guess the oblique angle from polygon normal-to-camera emphasises the problem. Anyway, give it a try...

I gotta think that it's the geometry, I've never seen a smooth sphere do that

Try 'merge points' and 'unify polys'
