View Full Version : After applying subdevide, how to delete the original?

09 September 2002, 11:00 AM

when i subdevide an object, XSI is creating a new objet from the original. How to delete the original, without deleting the new?

Freeze the subdivided object.
Select the non-subdivided object and delete it. :)

Or you can use the same object and press "+" or "-" on the keyboard to subdivide or de-subdivide your object. Try it! :buttrock:

that's a different operation though, hitting plus and/or minus geo-approximates your object instead of subdividing it... which i think is better.

i hear in 3.0 your can geo-approx then move points, then go back to a lower level and still retain the work on the higher level of approxing... hope this is true:rolleyes:
