Default UltraNoobafite Question

Ive looked for but cant find the answer to this hopefully simple question..... who knows maybe I saw the answer but didnt recognize it... I woke at 4:30am and have been playing with Maya and my Fundamentals book ever since

but... with noobs...... you can hit 1 2 or 3 for level of detail I see...... my question is...... is this level of detail for only visual aid or if for example you leave the detail level at 1 will it render this rough? I mean will the nurb sphere (for example) render completely smooth (like level 3) even if you leave it at level 1 while rendering?

no it's only for visualisation, you need to set the nurbs tesselation to make the sphere's smoother. It's in the render menu somewhere.

yep, its only for visual aid...

It will try to tessellate to a level higher than "level 3" but not always. You can see your objects with the final tessellation pressing "tessellation>display render tessellation" in the atribute editor
If your nurbs isnt tesellating enugh up the tesselltion atributes
