    Default Vertical Tongue and Groove Siding

    I have a quick accurender question:
    I am trying to create a material for vertical tongue and groove siding, but I've noticed that in accurender when you customize materials, you have to use a "tile" pattern and I can't get the horizontal members to line up in a way that they are hidden (see attached rendering, note thin horizontal black line above grey line).
    Everything else about this material is just about right, color, horizontal spacing of the vertical lines for the siding, etc.
    Anybody have any ideas?

    I am not sure if this is the correct way to handle this, but what I have done is to set the horizontal spacing to a distance that is "taller" than the building. That way there will be no horizontal tile lines.

    ctaho is correct. If you are attempting to hide the black horizontal line above the grey horizontal band simply make the scale in the y direction of your tile pattern sufficient for a single "tile" to cover the entire wall. This is the proverbial "uvw" problem with Accurender. Mapping can be quite difficult.

    Nice trees and design.
