Papervision3D smoothing issue, and fix

Recently I have come across an issue in Papervision that pops up if you are using smoothing. The issue only occurs when a smoothed material is viewed at an extreme angle where it is only a couple of pixels wide on the screen. This can cause Flash to take a major performance hit, or even lock up at times. luckily there is a simple and easy fix. If you set smoothing to true, be sure that you also set tiling to true, and this wont be an issue.

Hey, yeah that works however it can cause flickering on the edges of your planes. For my portfolio I tried it out and it just wouldn’t work with some of the planes because of the flickering.

Hey Pablo, thanks for the heads up.

I haven’t seen this issue myself. It seems odd that only some planes flicker. I wonder if it is the same planes every time? I will have to do some tests, and try to recreate this. I’ll let you know what I find.
