poly combining and separate
I'm having two separate but related problems.
I am duplicating faces from an existing polygon surface then combining those faces and merging the edges to create a single large poly face. When I do 2 or 3 or even up to 6 faces, the combine works fine. If I try to combine more than 6 faces, Maya crashes.
Thinking it may be my machine, I tried to do my combining on a different computer. But on this computer, when I duplicate the faces I cannot get them to separate from the original poly surface. I have the separate command checked and I have also tried to use the separate command after the duplicating is finished but neither seem to work.
Anyone have any clues about either of these issues?
