I'm having problems getting bump strength to soften up. Take a look at the attached image, and tell me if you think it looks right. I'm using 'brushed aluminum', bump at .01%, scaled at 50% about 5 or 6 times (who knows at this point lol). It looks way too rough to me. I think somethings wrong here. A few months back, when I adjusted settings to about this, the appearance would smooth out as expected. Is this a mapping problem? It doesn't even look brushed - it looks bumpy. Render setting is 'better'
I'm on 2010, SP5.
Any help is appreciated
