Default Whats more important

What do you think is more important on a Model..
A Crappy wireframe, full of tri's and ngons that looks good when rendered, and is still useable for animation with no problem..

or A really nice clean wireframe, that looks like crap when rendered, for some unusual reason...

ohh..but it can, in the hands of the wrong person..
Crappy textures, Bad rendering settings...
Any number of things can kill a nice wireframe in the final result..

but aren't we talking about the wireframe, and not anything else? cuz crappy textures can screw up a bad, good looking mesh too

LOZ, on a hard surface model such as you DS9, a clean wire is really a no- brainer; not important. there are no deformations, 99% of the faces will alway remain perfectly planar.
again same for the texturing., simple planar projections should come out nice and clean.

would it actually be posible to model something like a head or a full character without at least a few tris. Im far from an expert but sometimes when i'm modeling or i look carefully at someone elses wireframe i can at least see a few imperfections. As for a car or something solid i think its easier to get all quads.

I guess though towards animation and tweaking towards the end a reaonably clean mesh would be easier to work with, although i would imagine that even people working with games and animation, that they still find problems with certain things.
