Steve Ernst (steveernst117) closed T58910: Motion Tracking - no toggle to show marker search area? as Resolved.

Nevermind, I found it in the 'clip display' tab at the top of the screen. That'll take a bit of getting used to.

Steve Ernst (steveernst117) added a comment to T42082: Smooth Shading not working with Cycles.

Well yes, that would be an obvious solution....but the point of 'smooth shading' is to make it look smoother without the need for more geometry. Which, again, works perfectly until a normal map is applied. I'm sure I don't need to remind anybody that adding buttloads of faces to a simple object whenever I want to use a normal map is less than ideal. Any other useful advice?

Hmm...apparently the file didn't go through. Let's try this again.

Here's the new .blend. I used the 'pack all into .blend' option...let me know if something didn't go through.

Using GPU. Also, I was able to further refine the circumstances of the problem...apparently it has something to do with using a normal map texture connected to a normal map node connected to a shader node. If the normal map node is disconnected, or its strength set to 0, the visible faces go away.
