Hi,

Does anyone have any idea why my swimming pool is rendering with dark edges? I have tried creating a floor and adding water

as well as creating the water as a mass, it always renders with these dark edges.

Thank you!

I would assume its the way the exterior sun lighting is affecting the material.  Wouldn't you have a wall around the edges of water anyway?

Thanks!

The water is meant to be overflowing into each pool, like a waterfall. I think it is a lighting issue.

try making the water the thickness it would actually be if you are trying to get that effect I have designed several pools like that and the water thickness will not be much more than 1/4"

The pools need walls.  Then if they are to "overflow, the pool water needs to be slightly higher and you need someting else around the edges to look like falling water - not the same as the pool water.  Look at some of the fountains.
