Glow in low quality render around flat material objects?
show user profile  9krausec

I am getting this glow around my door and window in my low quality render (render settings at low), but this glow disappears in a higher quality setting render. I made the material completely flat, but I still get a glow.

Whats the meaning of this? Thanks.

Seems to me GI or some other light bounce is getting stretched way too much cuz of the low calculation values

I was rendering with MR and final gather on Draft... The Final gather was the problem, after turning it off I can now render without light freaking out.. Why would final gather screw this up (it had some odd effects even when turned to the "low/Medium" quality setting).. Odd...

ANOTHER question.. Didn't want to create another post, but I am also having hot key problems in the UVW Unwrap/edit mode. I am trying to switch from the "Scale, transform, Rotate" tools through the hotkeys "wer" and instead of switching the tools (like it has done in the past) it seems to toggle out of the edit window to the main window and use the hotkey options for the main window. I reset the UI buttons to default with nothing changing. I am running WINDOWS 7, so it might be a bug in the
OS, I do not know.. Here is a vid if you don't understand what I am trying to say..

Trying to get work done and I am running into these stupid problems.. ARGG!!!

Thank you for the assist..

You're looking for the Keyboard Shortcut Override toggle on the main tollbar (the button with a T).
