I probably won't. I can't believe I didn't try this sooner but the work around is to take the opacity to zero on the face and leave it active. Shutting the face off causes the problem. Thank you Roy

This is kind of annoying the material in combination with the way my polygon moves is causing highlights to pop on and off quickly. I think I understand why it is happening, but I'm not sure how to el
