View Full Version : Color bands when rendering

11-22-2004, 10:16 AM
I just purchased Maya 6 unlimited. I am really excited to get this rolling. It looks like it has a much better render engine than max. I have a basic scene I'm using to get used to the render settings.

I have a plane and a sphere using 1 point light for illumination. When I render this simple scene using either maya or mental ray, I end up with color bands on the objects. I've tried different lights and shaders and still end up with the same thing.

Anyone like to point me to what I'm doing wrong?

Oh yes. I am using an amd 2.4 and an nvidia fx5200 ultra. My memory is DDR 1 gig. Windows XP with all the latest drivers. And the latest DirectX.

Can you try to render the same picture in 16bits.iff?
Or turn on the jitter in mentalray?

Try hitting the 1:1 button in your render view window.
