View Full Version : Maya Shader? Modeling

10 October 2009, 03:20 AM
Hi all.. i am new to these forums, and I am new to autodesk maya. I've been searching for the last hour as to how to get rid of this problem.

I believe the proper term is shader groups, but I am not sure.
Here is a pic of the issue.
I think you guys can easily see what I am talking about in that pic.

Help is much appreciated, thanks.

Just a wild guess, but select the outer edge of that polygon and go to Normals -> Harden Edge.

Looks like the normals at 2 of the corners somehow got reversed.

I'd blow the polygon away and re-add it with the append polygon tool.

I was able to reproduce the glitch, check if you have accidentally extruded a single edge on the inside corner. Extra face there will cause this kind of problem.
