View Full Version : Rendering a simple curve?

09 September 2004, 01:42 AM
Hi all,

Simple question (I'm a newb). I've drawn a curve using the pencil tool. When I render, I don't see anything. What do I have to do to get a curve to show up in Maya 6?

You cant render a curve .
If you want to render something like a pencil try useing paint effects.

This is what I did to render a curve.

[1) Select a paint effect]

2) Select the curve

3) Select "Paint Effects -> Curve Utilities -> Attach Brush to Curves"
