Artifacts on Geometry when rendering Shadows??


#1

I’ve got some artifacts on some geometry when i try to render either ray-traced or depth-map shadows. No artifacts are present when its rendered without the shadows…but as soon as i use shadows i get these artifacts.

I’ve checked the direction of the normals…they all point out. I’ve also set the normals to face.

The problem still persists. Any ideas??

Thnx much. :bounce:

This is using Maya 2008 Extension 2. forgot to include that.

Are your render settings set to production, or are you ant aliasing?


#4

render using mental ray.ray trace shadows…it’ll go off…it happens often in maya only with polygon geometry…and has no solution except the above…
