View Full Version : How can I get polycount?

Hi, I wonder if there is comand to return current selected object's polycount.

Another question ,how to compare two objects' topologies?

Thank you in advance!

hey there

an easy way to see your polycount is in your heads up display.

number of faces : `polyEvaluate -f`;
please elaborate your definition of object topology.

Hi,Jeff, thank you very much! That's what I need. And by topology I mean the vertex number and vertex order . If two meshes have same vertex number and vertex order then I can apply blendShape ,I guess.

Hi, copain. I know how to display , but need to read and store it. Thank you all the same!

Topology is moot for blendshapes. You just need to know that the object has the same number of vertices. for example, create 2 cubes, triangulate 1, and you'll still be able to generate a blend shape....

Hi,Robert.Thank you for reply! But I find different vert order giving me wierd blendShape looking.
