[SOLVED] - What is this weird artifact?
It's been driving me nuts the last few days and I haven't the faintest clue what is causing it. I deleted all lights from the scene, checked the normals, looked for internal geometry, even went back to my original model of the feather and that even has the same problem. It's really bizarre that it's only one feather out of the whole lot as they're all the same model, just scaled differently. Help!
The original render with the artifact happening at the top right. The scene had a sun light.
Closer look at the problem. Might've deleted the light at this point.
And the original model that I duplicated from. No lights in the scene.
If there's no answer, I think I'll just start from scratch.
