    CS6: Strange Artefacts in 3D renders - what is causing this and how to fix it?

    craftycurate Level 1

      Hi all

       

      I am creating 3D renders in PS CS6, and I am getting strange blocky artefacts in the renders. These appear on first pass and persist throughout the render. This has happened in the last 2 renders I have tried - I haven't used 3D for a while before this and I don't remember these before.

       

      By blocky artefacts I don't mean the JPG artefacts created by the forum's degrading of the uploaded image, but the light coloured rectangular blocks around the "s",

       

      On Win7x64 with latest PS CS6 update; NVidia 650M\2GB on a Core i7\8GB.

       

      The attached example follows a YouTube tutorial on creating long shadow icons.

       

      Any advice appreciated!

       

      Thanks

      Richard
