Default not really...

actually, this hasnt been answered at all...

1st. my geometry is too complicated to simply apply a uv map of the mesh to the surface
2nd. none of the links to the plug-ins were accurate and i couldnt find any others on highend3d.com
3rd. i dont want just the wireframe, i want the wireframe on the shaded model.
4th. i dont have maya 5

so, if anyone could help me out i would much obliged!!!
cheers,
spaz.

You can do a playblast,window>playblast >options
and save the movie.
just set the shading options how you want.
shading>shade options> wireframe on shaded.
Show or hide whatever Ik's clusters etc.
If you render 3 or 4 times larger than you want
the final movie, and shrink it down in post.
the wire will look crisp and clear.

I like it better than doing a hardware render.
Joe

I prefer vector rendering, as that renders the wireframe nicely.

hmm, check your options to make sure the playback is correct. Otherwise, I dunno.
