I've got this problem since I used maya 5.1
lets say I have a simple plane.
ok here is the problem, when i try to smooth it (default) for some reason maya doesnt smooth the sharp edges around it ( result 1 ) creating the jaggy look, but when i smooth it using cps ( connect poly shape) the edges will be smoothed nicely, thats the result i want to get. as far as i can remember this problem doesnt occur in the previous version of maya..but then again i could be wrong. does anybody know how to solve this problem ? i really need to know the solution asap. thank you guys , you replies are highly appreciated
please take a look at the pic below to get the idea..thanks
