View Full Version : Problem with merge points?

I've just spend a very frustrating hour trying to deal with what seems to be a bug in the merge points routine.

I have a head model that I recently completed. A couple of days ago, I made a UV map of the head surface by making an endomorph to prepare for the mapping, then creating the UV.

Once I created the UV, I unwelded the points at the edge of the map in order to edit the UV points. The thing is, I can't get the points back together again!

Back in the base morph, the points have *exactly* the same position as shown by pressing 'i'. Yet when do 'merge points' set on automatic it merges no points.

I tried setting a fixed size and that doesn't help. Nor does jittering the points slightly (<0.01um) so that they are not exactly equal, just very close.

Most of these points are inside of the mouth and I really, really don't want to weld each one individually...

Anyone else had problems with merging points in LW8?

You have to delete the morph map before they will merge.

J_J is right. That is because points unwelded in a morphs have to be unwelded in the base model.
