weighted normal modifier not working

Post by zooropa » Sat Sep 12, 2020 3:04 pm

Hi. I am using a weighted normal modifier in my mesh in order to avoid the broken reflections of the mesh. I can see it works in the viewport, but not in the render. I am using lux 2.5 If this is not supported I will proceed to model the mesh only with quads and subdivision modifier. I was trying to avoid complex topology since its just a flat plane with thickness and bevel edges.


Thank you

I don't know about weighted normal modifier but sharp edge modifier should do the trick.

What Blender version are you using? Custom normals are not yet supported in Blender 2.90.

I am using 2.9 so actually this artifact will be visible also in cycles...

Do you mean luxcore and blender 2.9 ? Cause I tried and works in cycles.
