View Full Version : 3ds max - Meshsmooth Distorsion?

12-08-2005, 01:17 PM
Hello CGTalkers

I have this problem: have modeled an aircraft in lowpoly, then added a Meshsmooth 2x and am satisfied with the result. Later then, I was asked to texturize it so I started unwrapping UVs in 3dsmax (version 7.0 btw) and all went ok. Then, I started to handpaint the texture; but when I applied it to the model, to see the result with Meshsmoot activated, I noticed the texture is now distorted in some places. How can I tackle this? Do I have to reduce all the model in quads? Or there are some other ways to have it done the right way?

Tell us exactly the order of your modifier stack and whats in it, specifically where the UVW unwrap is in relation to the meshsmooth.

Actually, I have just the lowpoly model (with UVs already unwrapped and baked onto the mesh) and over it the TurboSmooth... but i tried with an UVUnwrap on the top and on the bottom of Turbosmooth, there's no difference (at least I noticed no difference)...
