hi guys...anyone know how to soften the edge of poly . i know i can use bevell...but i found that is impossible to use bevell once u got a complex model...otherwise its gonna be screwd up. its also impossible to smooth them because its not make the edge becomes soft..and it makes make the model kinda round . anway i tried to soften the edge using soft / harden edge tool...and it looks really bad. thanx alot for u'r answers:love:

u can soften the normals. go to polygons, down to normals and soften. it fakes the soft. if u are doin game characters this is what people use to make low poly (2000-3000 polies) look like its much more than that. hope that helps.
