odd looking effect

see the flanges, they look odd. and they don’t look round.
also i need them to be black but 'seeable" - so they still reflect the light.
thanks all

PS Shh! this is in 2.49b

You’re going to have to make them a really dark grey in order for them to be “seeable”.
Black cant really reflect light unless you turn up the spectrum. If it get’s any lighter than black, it’s not black.

PS… I’m using 2.49 too! :smiley:
