problems with fractal on nurbes?...
on Aug 2, 2007 at 4:09:08 pm

hello, im new to maya and was following a tutorial i found on computer arts UK. what i need to do is a curved background...i drew a cv curve, duplicated it moved it along the x axis, selected the other curve and lofted the 2 together...i then placed a fractal texture in the color attribute and my probles occured...the texture appears to be shattered or something. there are tons of diagonal lines and little triangles. the problem remains during renders, but it is not there as drastic for other textures, i have tried bulge and mountian and it was not there, but ramp had the same problem...i would appreciate any tips...


thanks
aaron

Do you have any lights casting shadows in your scene? This sounds like it might be an example of shadow artifacts.

If you can upload a screenshot somewhere and post a link to it, that would really help.
