Hi Guys ,

what is the lw's equivalent of maya's split polygon tool? the knive tool splits it all around the geometry i just wanna split one face.

Select the face (polygon) you want to split and use the Knife tool. Simple!

Lightwave also has a Split Polygon tool. First select the polygon. Next, select the points that will split the polygon and use the Split tool.

select the poly, choose the add point tool, click where you want the new points, go to point mode, select the points and hit the split poly command.
