I’m new the the forums and brand new to modeling and Blender. Ive been searching around the net looking for Blender friendly sites and was happy to find BlenderArtists
At any rate I just finished up my first model and when I rendered it I got sections that show up as all black. At first I thought it had something to do with the normals but recalculated them all to the outside, set smoothing and rendered again with the same result.
I also removed all the faces from the affected area and rendered it without them, then added them back in but the result was the same.
Here is a link to a few screen shots showing the normals then the final render…might be hard to see in the screen shots but the normals are rendering to the outside on the affected area and seem fine…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nZxdHZlk-A
I searched the forum but didnt find anything that seemed to help (sorry if this is something that’s been hashed out before here). I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
The only other thing I can think of is to redo the entire front part of the slide but would like to avoid that if possible.
