Thickness on Cloth Surface

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Ive not seen this happen before so hoping that someone will show me the way...

 

Very simple carton shape for a packaging visual and when I drop it in a thickness surface which normally give me a nice little thickness to replicate card at the sides its doing something else that altering my UV's. Ive even re unwrapped it after making editable. but seem to get the same things happening. Its not having to use a nurb to smooth as isn't necessary but the effect is a bit similar to having artefacts.

 

Hopefully someone can help here.

At first glance I would say that looks like a phong issue.. hang on - I'll check your file, and get back to you...

Yep, it's that. Your Phong angle was set to 180 degrees. Reduce that to 40 and all is better. Is that what you mean ?

You can get it potentially better than that by selecting certain edges, r-clicking and choosing Phong Break Selected if you need more precise control of what breaks where... in the same menu you can also select phong breaks to see what's what, and unbreak selected if you go wrong applying it...
