View Full Version : Layout killing my models

09-28-2009, 10:21 PM
I would charge extra for the Spikeman model (see below) if I did it intentionally. But where did the baby-smooth skin go?

LW crashes frequently. When importing certain models, they spike out. Using IK Booster on rigs. No dynamics. However, same problem often arises even when importing a model without bones into a clean layout. Models are ok in Modeler. Also, MorphMixer panel often causes freeze.

Reinstalled clean LW from download. Using fresh models from backup. Same problem.

Entire day spent troubleshooting!

Working on a PowerBook G4, OS 10.4.11, 2GB ram, 1.67 ghz
LW v 9.6

Thanks for advise.

You have subdivision set to last? Check the mesh for duplicated geo, merge points, etc. Looks like you might have a bunch of triangles in there too, no good for sub-d...

Thanks Toby,

I opened the file again today and model was ok. I need to get this rendered right away, so I'll check out your tips once I complete this job.
