Default Maya Vector Rendering - Major Problems with shading

Hi

well, i tried the vector renderer in maya, fine results, as long as its only single-colored, more colors result in STRAANGE highligts.

I tested it with a simple nurbs sphere, same result, i tesselated it very high, same result, different material, different lighting, same result

See Picture, left is vector, right is software rendering, standard lighting, standard material

IS that 2 color, Cause it looks nice.


You will get those highlights, as the vector render is a bit finnicky.

Nono i donīt want to have the highlights like the software rendering I just want sharp highlights, like its rendered with a cartoon renderer, but the highlights are just.. roughly and not round as they shoud be, just strange in shape.

I dont think There is any way to make them smoother, but I am not a rendering guru.


I am a modelling guru though

Maya vector renderer uses the ravix engine which is part of swift 3d. Swift 3D for max has muuuuch better results, there must be a way ^^

A tut for that? No, itīs modelled out of an incredible genious idea ^^
No idea for some BIG maya-project -> boring->tv program sucked -> modeling

I suggest you use Maya for modeling, so try www.learning-maya.com, a LOT tuts.

A great poly-face-modeling-way (i think) is http://mr2k.3dvf.com/tutorials/max/tutorials_joan.htm Itīs for max but its no problem to model like that in maya.

Bad english, sorry
