Need help on Booleans>Union problem!
K guys,

IÕm doing the Tree Frog modeling tut. IÕm on part 4 around the 4 minute mark (where he combines the eye to the body). So I select my eye, shift select my body, and then go Booleans>Union and my object disappears!

I have no idea whatÕs going on, somebody please help!

I am currently using Maya 8.5 unlimited on a G5 if that helps any.

One possible cause.

check that the two pieces of geometry intersect fully, if one vert or one edge of one piece is outside the other then this would happen.
