Phong issue

Recommended Posts

Hi all not sure what's happening here but I'm having some issues with a UV map that's showing the joints on the map that seems to correct its self when the phong shading is turned off, which is not ideal. Any thoughts on what maybe causing this...

many thanks

Tony

Did you do an optimize?

 

Or an 'align normals' ?

 

Switch 'use edge breaks' in the phong tag off?

Sorry should have given more info sorry. I'm importing the model as a .obj file and get this error. I've done the same with other software but I don't get the same error which I thought was strange. The model was originally exported from 3dCoat if this helps but I still confused as to why I get this error in C4D and not other packages so I thought I must be missing something 😞  I assumed it was something to do with the UV map?

I have seen this issue before with imported objects, and it has definitely come up on the cafe at some point in the last 2 years. But I can't find it now, or remember if it had a solution or not. I have a nagging feeling though that Cinema was indeed the only app that shows the seams in these circumstances.

 

Did this model come with a Normal Tag ? And what were your import settings ? And was it available in any other formats ?

Yeah it came with one but doesn't seem to make a difference if I keep it or delete it. As for the settings I tend to use the default ones... thanks for the reply

It's a personal project so I can PM you the file if it helps...

I can certainly take a look, but I am no great expert on importing stuff, so may well not be able to solve it...
