I have been trying to render a font/curve on a curve, but no matter what settings I use, the underlying mesh gets bent and breaks to produce black marks on the surface.
It works fine if I don’t use the curve modifier.
In the image, the green and blue ones are not using the curve modifier, but the red one is. Notice the breakup on the “M” and the back of the red letters.
I am uploading the BLEND file, if anyone has time to review it.
Blender Internal 2.49.2.
