Element 3D - Environment creating pixilated shadows
on May 5, 2014 at 2:06:38 am

Hi,

I'm using Element 3D to create a 3D logo. For some reason the environment in Element 3D is created pixilated shadows on the object. What would cause this?

Element 3D only use environment map inside Element 3D .

you can change other environment map photo

also you can use other layer as environment map and blur it .

Can you post some pictures of what you mean by shadow? Element 3D doesn't technically have shadows. Do you mean reflections? do you mean lighting?

Pictures really help.

Sorry for not clarifying what I meant by "shadows."

I'm not referring to any shadows cast by lighting or anything. I'm referring to the darker areas of the image used for the environment.

I applied the "Chrome" material to my object. Then I used the company's logo as a texture to apply to the front side of the object.

Now, I don't have the interface in front of me because I was doing this at home and I'm at work right now, but there is an option to select the environment in the same section where you edit the texture, (I'm not referring to the big environment button near the top of the interface), and it seems this option only applies to the texture. Well, when I choose an environment here, that environment is incredibly pixilated and the pixilation is very pronounced in the darker areas of the environment image.

I hope that makes sense. Sorry, I can't post pics at the moment because, as I said, I'm at work.
