Can you explain how it looks like, because not all of us came from a Maya background :D

What are you asking? You want to smooth your objects or do you want wireframe on a shaded object?

In Maya you can apply anti-aliasing to objects in wireframe view.
I don't think there is such an option in XSI, at least I haven't found it.

So basically you just want to smooth the object in wireframe view? Every polygon in xsi is a subd so all you have to do to smooth it is hit + on the numpad to subd it and - to take it back to poly.

no there is no smooth wireframe option in XSI afaik. You can make the wireframe thicker if you are unhappy with the thickness.

Maybe he ment as a Nurbs object?

No he means smooth wireframe , an option in maya that antialiases the object wireframe display. you guys can stop the guess game now , I used maya before :)

Atleast someone knew what was going on. :thumbsup:

Well, you can turn on anti-alising (you probly know how to do that with your card, if you dont, then leave 3d I have got some problems with this, but it might work for you...

If you want to anti-alias your wire in viewport, just up the anti aliasing in your video card options (usually it's set to 'application controlled', I set it to 4x or 8x, for really smooth lines).

You're probably going to need a really powerful card on approved drivers to keep stability in XSI when using high OGL AA.

I've not had any luck on consumer cards w/ OGL AA & XSI.

I would rather have gcards tweaks application controlled rather than have to set things globally .. maye 4.01 would have that option ..

thnx all tho
