O.K. so over Christmas I got on with finishing my Ogre from the 'Maya 4 Fundamentals book', takes abit of getting used to polygons seeing as I am used to splines from A:M.
Anyway, I decided to try the new Smooth Proxy Tool that comes with 4.5 having seen Jason Busby from Buzz3d.com demonstrate it. Makes life a little easier, but it can be slow on the redraws of edits. Thing is now I have noticed spikes appearing on the seams of my model. I have made an instance of the model for the right side so that I can see the symmetry of my model better, but when I use exponential method for the polygons I get spikes! If I change the method to linear they go away.
I am not too worried by this anomaly since when I finish the model I will tweak the seam anyway, I just wondered what I have done to cause it - any ideas?
Tickety boo and ta ta for a bit...
