View Full Version : Sub Patch Weight

02-14-2015, 11:25 AM
I want to harden some subpatched corners using Sub Patch Weight / Map/ Weights. I 'm using LW 11,6. But it does not work. I also have LW 11.0.3 installed and here it worked fine.
Can somebody tell me what's wrong?

Try to post a sample of the object if you can.
what subpatch mode are you working in? cc or normal? the weight control is different on those.

check youtube tutorials, lightwave, weight sharpness etc..

The problem is really..you are not showing how you are trying to adjust weight sharpness..and in what mode and with what kind of tools, give some feedback on that and I think it will be faster to solve.

If you work in the detail tab and try to adjust edges with cc sharpness..you have to use catmull clark subpatches, it won´t work on normal subpatch.

for normal subpatches, if you have polygons or edge selected..you go to the map tab, and set map value to 100 in subpatch BASE weight, not the edge weigth, that won´t work with normal subpatches..you can also airbrush paint the subpatch weight.

Ahh...sorry, you have a version problem..it works here on lw 11.6 anyway.

If you used the weight tool, and click apply..make sure to turn off falloff.
