Default Mirror and instance

Hey,

I have a model and it is in half along the x axis. I want to mirror the geometry and smooth the mirrored geometry and have it update when I edit the original geometry. Can someone tellme how to do this?

(Polys by the way).

I tried the mirror tool but when I smoothed the original geometry it smoothed the original as well.

Thanks.

I don't think you understand hat I mean.

View this tutorial: http://www.digitaltutors.com/digital...deo.php?v=998. See how the guy is working on one half and the other half is smoothed and it pdating when he edits the polys on the un-smoothed version of the model.

Hey,

I didn't think you could move out the smoothed geometry with proxy. At least you wasn't to rude when I said you don't understand me.

Thanks for your help matey.
