What changed from Visualize 2017 to 2019 (Texture issue)

So, I've been using Visualize 2017 for some time to create some really nice images.


I had this smart idea that Solidworks 2019 could be worth upgrading to.


Without getting into too much detail, I can't get any renders to come out without major major issues. Seems to have something to do with parallel surfaces, or possibly parallel surfaces that are touching? I design sheet metal assemblies, this situation will not change, and re assembling all of our lineup to have no contact is not happening.


Anyone have a remedy or have something similar happen?


The 2019 image attached was made by opening the 2017 visualize file and rendering with the same resolution/render passes. No changes were made.


Thanks for any help!


edit: The appearances that are funny are all anisotropic with color and bump powdercoat textures box mapped. This happens even if I recreate the appearance in 2019. I feel like I'm missing something simple.


2nd edit:  It looks like 2018 SP5 works as intended.  Wonder if it's an issue with going from 2017 to 2019, and not necessarily with 2019 itself.
