View Full Version : Any 3D App Subdivide Tri's as good as Quads ?

Hello the App's I use philosophy is model in Quads.for subdivision polygons.
Was wondering if there's a 3D App that can subdivide a Triangulate mesh just as good as a quad Mesh.

our there any such App's and what's there names ?
I know I could get all the demos and try them all out but thought you all could help me short the list of demos :)

There's not.

Some of the meshes at sites like 3Dcafe,Turbo Squad our 100% Tri's.
So I was thinken maybe there App Subdivided Tri's.
ah, if no App does Subdivided Tri's.
Does not seem like a wise sell's plane to Triangulate them.
I would rather buy a quad mesh then a Tri mesh.

Makes sense,some people will forbid you to modify their models,triangulated is one way to make it harder for those people.

I would consider doing that as well,unless I'd post it as a study,and usually,posting a thread on cgtalk is better at first to let the public know that you are the one who made it.

Say locks our to keep honest people honest.

Stuff like cars that subdivided and then Tri' useable but makes a high Polycount.

I would not buy A Triangulated Character or even use one ya gave me free.
A Triangulated Character is about worthless.
When I start selling character meshes they well be Quads.

Guess I would rather have some stuff stolen then lose customers.
or get a bad reputation for making unusable meshes.

Oh,my bad,I thought you downloaded a FREE model from the internet.

I didn't realized you actually bought it.

ah, no bad, I did not buy any meshes.

hopefully I am going to start selling some.
