View Full Version : Problem with sub patch

11-05-2002, 01:13 AM
Hi! I have been playing around with lightwave lately and i noticed that when i press TAB to smooth it all out using sub patch i got these really weird edges and all of the polys are either 3 or 4 sided...

her is a pic of the strange edges:

does anyone have any suggestions on removing these and getting everything to smooth without any strange things happening?

the model inst anything but something a made just to show what happens

looks like you have a band of polygons in between there.
laso select those points, hit "m" select "fixed" put in a small decimal and hit enter. then you'll end up with some 2 point polygons there, that you should delete.

Either that or you need more definition in that area.

Check in the area indicated to see if there is an extra polygon in that cross section.
