I'm just babbling here to reach an understanding.
The Advanced tab of the 3D model window contains Normals properties settings. Some of the models I work with are just not that great. The minute you animate them or the camera "fireflies" tend to appear along the edges. I've noticed if I use From File + Auto Smoothing and adjust the degree angle that this tends to help with "fireflies" along the surface.
Now question - Am I using the Generate Method for normals properly or am I not?
Camera Properties - This is along the same line when it comes to "fireflies" along the model. Master Tony mentioned to me months ago that if I moved the Near Clipping Distance to 8.0 that this would help with fireflies when the model/camera is moving from a near distance. He indeed was correct.
Question - Is the clipping distanced measured in pixels?
