Material reflection issue
show user profile  okie_ozolinsh

got a thing that's been messing with me for a while now, the reflection on object seems to be distorted. While it should be a straight line it does not behave that way at all.

I am guessing it has something to do with geometry of the object because as you can see in this test the two boxes in the back with the same material have a nice straight reflection that is following from first to second.

I have tried UVW maps and anything else I could think of, but there are no changes on the objects at all.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

remove all smoothing groups.

in c4d we call it the phong value. determines the 'bend' value of a flat face or joined faces.
