objects render incorrectly when solid white background is on

I have a group of objects with a dark material assigned that render as white when I choose a solid white background instead of sky.

Please let me know if anyone figured this one out.

Cheers.

Hi,

 

I tried a black and a gray material in the attached drawing using white bg.

I don't see any difference on the rendered objects having the white background or the sky used.

 

So I guess we need your drawing (with the objects that makes it problematic for you) so we can see what happens with sky and with white bg.

Hi,

 

I think it's more an issue with that type of material (even it's set to "matte" it seems to mirroring the environment to much?).

Look to my (simple) material definition, that works as I would estimate, it it ok for you too?

Funnily enough, in another file I had two types of objects, the one from the previous file and another one, both with the same material assigned, and one rendered correctly, and the other in white...
