Default how to use multiple shaders on CPS poly proxy meshes?

Hi,

I wish to use CPS poly proxy for my character. I don't want to use Maya SUbD as it is too slow for me on my machine.

whenever I try to texture a CPS mesh with more than one shader and then smooth (increase CPS subdivisions) I loose my mapping and the texture is not propogated properly over my mesh.

How can I use multiple shaders on my CPS mesh?

Connect Poly Shape.

Like a pseudo Subdiv, and, in some respects, CPS gives you more features and control as opposed to using Maya's default Subd engine.

Hey Jim,
here is a tip...actually thats what i do with my models... might work for u too...
when i m down with the modelling completely then its time to texture it...so what i do is that i delete the smooth proxy created by CPS...and then i take a duplicate of the half side of the model (low poly cage) and combine it (polgons > Combine) then merge the vertices of the center line...so now u have a final pologonal mesh...then i texture it the way i wana do it....using polgonal texture mapping tools...and in the end u can either use Smooth or can convert it to Sub Dz...
hope that might help...
Ciao

Hi,

Am using the new 4.5 version smooth proxy. This enables me to paint skin and cluster weights, etc..

Still not sure if I can use multiple shaders on the smooth proxy.

any tips.
