    Material image skewed

    I am using an OOTB material/image for a brick wall, which is distorted on the building. Any thoughts on how it got distorted and/or how to fix it?

    Might have to do with the fact its HUGE! Those blocks are bigger than the people. I'd try scaling it to the correct size first and see if that helps.

    Thanks - that might help. But that doesn't explain why it gets all goofy on one end when it comes out almost normal on the curving wall on the opposite end of the building (see attached).

    I was wondering if there is some hidden "origin" that's far away (similar to when ACAD hatches get all screwy).

    Hmmmm. Now that I don't know. I just assumed it was like that on all the walls. Same wall type? Same material? Why it would work on some walls and not on others, I have no clue. I'll have to think about that one.

    There's no origin issues that I'm aware of. Just for the heck of it, try deleting the offending wall and recreating it and see if that works.

    Same material. Wall type is different 'cause the one is a simple wall while the other has the brick above, CMU below with the wainscot sweep.

    What you are seeing is a Moire effect. It's a factor of the processing of the pattern and is hard to avoid. A higher resolution should help.

    Well, that's fun stuff!

    And it does seem to help. Now I just need to figure out how to make my way-out-of-date computer let me save/export the full perspective when rendered higher than 150 dpi.

    Thanks!
