hi i was just loking at many of the polygon models people have done and wondered how they get their "things" to be so smooth without using millions of faces and vertesies? always when i do a poly model the faces alwas show in the render and i can never get a smooth surface even if i use the smooth poly.:headbang: is there another way to make polygons smooth or is there just another option in the poly smooth that i have over looked?
the reason you're having this problem has nothing to do with polygons. Once you have a model, right click-drag and select Faces mode. select the faces you want to look smooth. Then go to Edit Polygons> normals>soften/harden and select the options box. then drag the slider all the way to AllSoft. Apply, and view the changes.
