Weird rendering issue - Max 2009
show user profile  capone_adam
Can anyone explain what is going on here? Here my brick texture looks all fine and dandy close up but when zoomed out it looks 'curved'?? Like some sort of illusion?

It's called a moiré effect.
If it's in the viewport, not much you can do about it.
For rendering, try different antialiasing filters. Some are better than others.

yeah, moire, i forgot what that was called. Reduce the contrast and vary the brick pattern a bit and you should be able to fix it.

Yeah thanks guys it was those two things. Toned down the grey which helped but there were still slight tone changes in the lines so switched to super sampler (hamersly) and it made all lines exactly the same tone. Perfect.
