yeah. I had had some problems when i was trying to go from level 5 to level 6 on a couple of the subtools. Really elongated waiting time between strokes and visible outcome, and sometimes just plain failing to up the level. But as I hadnt uv'd him I knew, like I say, it was a bit of a non-starter. I was still wondering about colour maps, and the whole uvlayout thing so it was almost 'a sign' I guess, that I ran into trouble. It also gave me the chance to add some more edge loops in maya, as some of the geometry was very light and struggling to take much/any detail at the mid-subdivision levels.
