View Full Version : weird distortion?

09-30-2012, 06:21 PM
Hey all,

I'm getting some weird curving distortion in my perspective view and also when I render (I know there's a perspective control in display options.. but it's also in the renders). I've highlighted in red what I'm talking about. Instead of being a straight line I get this weird curve. It was a straight boolean and everything is straight. Any ideas?

It looks like smoothing errors. You could try reducing the Smooth Threshold in the surface settings.

hmm.. I don't know.. My threshold is low.. set to 35 and also when I do a render with it turned off it's still the same problem :/

This is the biggest mistake people make when asking for help; not posting their files. If its in the render post a render, then post the scene file and objects.

Sorry. I was hoping someone had come across this before sharing. Here it is.

I'll check this later, but see if it this case: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?116209-exploding-mesh-%28&p=1106613&viewfull=1#post1106613


PS: Seems to render fine since that big ugly concave n-gon is planar. Still... I would dice it :P
As for the distortion... Well... you modeled it that way... the ramp is not flat, and you have the gutter of the V diving down, that accentuates that perception of distortion.
