The next image will show the problem I am having.

Material View

I've been playing around trying to fix this, I had this issue ages ago once but I never found a fix, a year later it has cropped up again. I have checked face orientation, normals are facing the correct way, there are no extra faces inbetween those sections, I have merged vertices by distance, applied rotation and scale, my seams and UV seem alright and I have no marked sharp edges. Images shown below, what have i missed?

Above is the blend file.

  • $\begingroup$ It's hard to tell, but it looks like it may be a Blend Mode issue. Try changing Blend Modes in the Material Properties tab. I can't tell if you're using transparency or not, but if not, make sure it's set to opaque. $\endgroup$ Dec 15, 2020 at 16:53
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots I believe I have now uploaded the blend file now, I have removed all other content apart from the issue asset $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Try changing the color space of the image texture you're using for your alpha from sRGB to non-color $\endgroup$ Dec 15, 2020 at 17:17

    $\begingroup$ In the material, disable the Show Backface option? $\endgroup$

Edit: So my answer fixed the problem on my computer but not on yours apparently...

Show Backface seems to be the option you want to disable, it will affect the Material Preview in Cycles, it won't affect the Render, except in Eevee:

I have managed to fix it on my main file but that was through various different ways, including changed it to Alpha Hashed and Non colour in the alpha material. I think your way does fix it but not always maybe? I'm not sure $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yup just did cheers, its the final image. Very odd indeed, like I mentioned it did seem to get fixed but the fix seems random in a way $\endgroup$

So I found the Solution with the help of @moonboots and @ChristopherBennet, here are the images explaining.

  1. If using an Alpha Blend or Alpha Hashed mode with an alpha texture node, make sure Non Colour is selected in the colour space drop down.

Shader settings

  1. Disable "Show Backface" under the "Materials tab", "Viewport Display."

Disable Show Backface

  1. Get rid of any extra materials or make sure they follow the same settings, if using multiple objects, separate objects and texture separately.

Extra materials

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots So I think because these materials were attached to it and they had the BackFace enabled and Colour Space set to sRGB they were conflicting with the main material. I was able to re-repeat these steps and consistently fix the problem $\endgroup$
