New strange thing happening. I have a material and when I turn on the bump map the material is mirror reflective. When I turn the bump off it is not reflective. It is a stucco material so it should not be highly reflective. I have never had this issue before.

Although, the material preview looks correct with the bump on.

Very strange.

Some images maybe? Or you can send me the material itself...

sounds like bump frequency is very high which means even a small bump value will cause 'bump clipping' (shiny polygonal surface)

I will post some images. I have used this same material many times. It is only doing it on this project. I am about 99.9998% it is user error. So I will send you the material for analysis as well.

I have never heard of bump clipping. I will try a different bump map to see if that makes a difference too.

Well, it must have been the bump clipping. After looking more closely. I realized when I uv unwrapped my walls I forgot to scale the uv's and the map was very tiny. After I scale it correctly to a normal size, it rendered fine,
