View Full Version : Shatter Effect

03 March 2008, 09:07 PM
I know this will sound like a noob question, but can you only do the shatter effec with NURBs objects? I swear in the docs it doesn't say either way which leads me to believe it'll work on both. But every time I run it on a poly I get an error and nothing happens. Thanks in advance.

By the way, this is the error message I get-

//Error. An error occurred while running the Solid Shatter script. Results may be invalid. If necessary, undo to restore the previous situation.

You can run the shatter effect on polygons. Make sure you delete history: just about everything breaks the shatter tool. Be aware that if you have the shatter effect apply a material on the interior faces, you won't be able to shatter the new pieces again without breaking the connection to the shader group. I usually just shatter objects with lambert1 applied then start assigning materials when I have the effect I want.

Hey there,
Has a good outline showing how nurbs and polys are used in shatter
