Hi i would like to know how to get the mesh of my character to smooth. i have already bound skin and done weight painting & am now ready to do a test render on a short piece of animating, but cant get the mesh to smooth. i went to: mesh / smooth. i am not sure if i need to change any of the settings on the option box, & did reset it before i pressed 'smooth'. i did try both 'exponentially' & 'linearly' but dont know what other settings to change accordingly. i read the Maya book section on smooth mesh, but it talks about 'preview smooth' all the time. i want the permanent smooth.
i have tried to send it, but it wont upload from here & your web takes me to another forum site where i still dont know how to upload - sorry, not very experience with this type of thing. could you let me know how i can upload the file?
Well, I figured it out. It was because the teeth were parented underneath the mesh, so it got confused on what to smooth. Unparenting the teeth, and instead using a parent constraint to the body worked.
