View Full Version : Smoothing - noob question!

16-02-2011, 03:04 PM
I have made a character model that is all one mesh and I want to apply smoothing to parts of it and not the whole thing.

Is this possible? When I apply it to the whole model the armor looses shape..

What software are u using?

if its max, just go in the "polygon" sub object level and select the polygons u want smoothed, once happy with ur selection go to the polygon: material ID's and select a different smoothing group for ur selection, or if its a tesselation smooth u want find "Msmooth" and use that.

U can also just select the faces u want smoothed, and with the faces selected apply a Meshsmooth from the modifier list, it will stack a meshsmooth modifier in the stack and it wont smooth the faces around the selection u made like Msmooth will.

hope it helps
