Hey thanks, that's pretty handy!

What exactly do the bottom buttons do? Some of them make one or the other (smooth or rough) dissapear, but I can't figure out what they stand for.

Nice, i like it
I like how you could have the smooth geometry on one side and the low poly on the other side, it helps to see the low poly version without the low poly hiding inside the smooth. One question tho, i noticed when i used your script on my
model everthing else disapears, is there something im doing wrong or an option that doesnt make everything else diasspear.
thanx, great script

wow equinox

thatlooks extremly handy, im in school now. but wheni get home i play on downloading that script. is there anyway you can toggle your proxy? like the smooth toggle script that is on here from play? you can just press a hotkey and it smooth's your mesh. and you press it again and it goes back toits original version. is there anyway you can set yours up like that? that would be very handy i think. press a key your mesh is proxy, press again its at its base.

@Levitateme: thanks... :) and your suggestion is very good. I think Lightwave is working similar toggle ( tab key ). I am working on version 2.0 now. I will add icons and I will create an assistant for your suggestion. I think this will be good. :thumbsup:

yah, like if you could set it to a hotkey, and just toggle it on and off i think that would be very handy...not to be presumptious, but make sure to give a msg when your done, i think wha tyou have now is alraedy very handy. but a toggle i think would be really sweet also. well eq, im going to give your script a try now thanks again.
