View Full Version : probelms with smooth in maya

09 September 2006, 04:58 AM
when i smooth my model i get a problem with the texture, it creates these dark patches on the model. the models seems to be modelled in all quads,
its random where the black patches are, seems to make a square black patch around certain vetices.

i cant figure out why it would do this?

see attatched pics

original model

smoothed model

smoothed with texture

p.s. this is a model i have found on the net, not my own.

Can you post wireframes of the same pics? its hard to tell whats going on just from the flat shade renders

A few things to try...

Setting all the normals to face.
Making sure all the normals are facing the same way, use 'conform' to check.
Averaging the vertex normals.

Basically, just play with all the normals tools :)
