I am trying to render a table in photoworks, but i can't get a smooth surface
as you can see in the picture the table has some smudge on it..
Anyone know how this is possible, and how to get rid of it?
So that is not a decal?
no it is just a flat surface.. material low gloss plastic.
I had this problem before, but don't now how to solve it.
It could be a reflection of the background image. I would change the surface to Matte or no reflectivity.
I did set the reflection on the material illumination tab to zero.
I tried different backgrounds, but it does not eliminate the smudge..
I think you are right it has something to do with reflection, but don't know how to solve this...
also make sure you did not add a decal by mistake. You could drag some Rubber onto the part and see if that changes it.
you could apply a white decal to the surface as a quick fix
It's your indirect illumination settings. Go into PW options on the illumination tab and adjust the settings (try high) to see if that helps.
I rendered this image with high illumination. I also tried different illumination settings including photo realistic.
The problem seems to appear on large flat horizontal surfaces.....
I played with lightnings en different materials.. the smudge changes, but don't dissapear..
Can you upload the files here to test or can you check them on a different machine.
I can upload the file, but it is solidworks 2009.
At least we can check if this is an issue in higher versions also OR someone with SW2009 can try to replicate it.
Ok. I will upload the file this evening
I solved the problem by changing the directional lights in to point lights..
Thanks for the help..
