PortHole Material has a square inside

So if you look closely you can see that a porthole material has a weird shading issue - a small rectangle inside of it is visible and this effect "squares" the window when looked from further away. It's not as noticeable on an Airbus window because that one is rounder but is still present. Any reason why this happens? I've tried messing around with UV Channels but to no availporthole-issue.png

Porthole material simulates a interior. It is to be applied to the window, not the frame. The frame should be a standard material in most cases.

No it shouldn't. It's set up exactly like it is in the Material Sample. The issue is present on the default A320 NEO windows as well. a320.png
