View Full Version : can I decrease polycount?

Dear Friends:

I found a great 'hand' model that came with lw 5.
the hand looks like a scanned object, and it looks amazing.
I was able to attach the hand to the arms in a lw model I am working.
The hands look super, but there is a problem. The human figure is very low poly...but the hands is too high on the polycount.
What I need to know if is there a way to decrease the polycount in
the 'hand' object.
Thanks !!!

if you do not intend to use a subpatch object, you can select the hand or select areas wich have a lot of polys and then under construct tab
use reduce polys or reduce poly +.

Or simply select a couple of nearby polys and go to detail tab/polygons and merge polygons..or use shorcut k for merge polygons, this is to manually reduce polys where you need it.
