Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Material Inconsistency from Reflection

I have a black non-metallic material that looks inconsistent in my scene as opposed to the asset viewer. I am suspecting that this is caused by the reflection because when I move the object outside for example, it shows correctly. I am also getting some strange artifacts from my reflection spheres. Any ideas as to why this is occurring would be appreciated.

I'm using a constant of 0.5 for the roughness

that material looks fine, although you shouldn't need two sided. if you've done more tweaking in the details panel there could be something in there that's an issue.

what does the ceiling material look like?

what lights do you have and what type are they?
