I have a strange issue that I’ve not come across before using cycles.
I’m working on a model of JJ Abrams’s Enterprise, but along the rim of the dish I can’t seem to get rid of that lighting effect where it looks like I’m not using smooth shading, which I am.
I have attempted using an edge split with a set angle, I’ve also tried manually marking the sharp edges, no joy there either.
The only way I could get it to diminish was by increase the size of the sun, which, ruins all the shadows.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also any critiques would be welcome, though I know its not the right forum category for that.
