I'm now wondering how I can change the number of U and V lines on the plane that I've created when I changed the closed curve planar surface.
It has automatically given me 3 lines in the x and y direction. How do I change this?
I tried doing it in the attribute window with no success, then I tried Edit Nurbs>Rebuild, again with no success.
I'm pretty new to Maya, and although I'm fluent in 3d modelling in 3d architectural programs, I have to admit that Maya is confusing me with the endless amount of of ways and options you can edit/transform create a surface/object.
I have to admit that it is a brilliant program though!!
You could try breaking up the curve in 4 pieces and then use the birail function to create a surface out of it. You will be able to do a lot more with that surface. Before using birail rebuild curves so that opposite curves have the same parametirization.
