View Full Version : smooth mesh and on face controlers question.

06 June 2010, 02:27 AM
I am trying to make on-face-control by using the rivet script to attach locators on mesh surfaces. Everything set up properly and work great on lowpoly mesh. But when I smooth the mesh, all locators moved away too (to the right side of the mouth in this case).

So I wonder how you smooth your mesh after you set up on face control for your lowpoly mesh. Please give me some advice.

Try using smooth mesh preview (hit 3). You can render a smoothed version of the mesh with mental ray. without actually changing the mesh This will maintain uvs also, and should keep the controls working correctly. You can adjust the settings in the attribute editor for the mesh.

you can also duplicate your mesh , and then create a blendshape from the mesh which deforms , to the other mesh - then you can smooth this one instead of the original_mesh , this might be helpful when you render e.g. in VRAY or any other renderer / which does not support the smoothMeshPreview )
