Hey People,

Im heading a short 3D film, and have a little question about modeling, smoothing and rendering.

I would like to know the pros and cons of rendering with smooth proxy, as apposed to smoothing models and then rendering. Is it wise to render with smooth proxy other then smoothing, If so, why would you smooth anything?

Thanks!

I find it more advantagoues to use Mental Rays approximation editor and add a subD tessellation node. You have a greater selection of tessellation options and can do make a model look smoother more efficiently.
