3DS Max: Ferrari F550 Render

Posted: April 02, 2011
Hi everyone

I am new here, i have a render of the ferrari f550 im modeling at the mo. I didn't know where to post this but i have a problem i hope you can help me out with.

If you check out the render, i have circled areas in which have strange shadows where there shouldnt be any.

I think its something to do with the polys that are very close together e.g. the door seam, plus rendering using Mental Ray.

Help with this would be greatly appreciated, as its ruining a near finished model.

Could you do a wire frame render close-up to one of the problem areas, it could be some miss aligned vertices

Or some vertices have to be removed or weld. Wireframe would be helpful Smile

Make it more clear and get it on good pixels . . . . .

I had the same issue with my Pontiac vehicle model (just posted). I had to separate the small trim pieces from the flat body surfaces so the normals lit correctly. This is the exact result you're getting right around the door. The "shadow" you have circled over the wheel-well actually looks like an accurate reflection and doesn't look bad in my opinion. But, the hood and around the headlight does look like a normals issue.
