Thanks,
That is a good idea. I have a question though, when you save out the transformed object, it is a triangulated one. Is there any way to convert it to quads and reduce the poly count in modeler?

I tried doing the save trans object route of something that got it's shape from endomorphs, but the triangulated polys were a bit unruly to try and bring back in for applying and calculating dynamics.

you could calculate a non subd object but teh final look would be different

Yeah, that or use the ToQuads free plugin to change it to
back Quads and then maybe Qemloss 3 to reduce it to
some usable cage resolution.

I use save transformed allot as a modeling tool tho not
too often with dynamics like Proton did. - Good tip!

Thanks!

:cool:

Thanks for the suggestions. I couldn't find toQuads anywhere on Flay or google search, but I did find and try Merge Trigons plugin and it worked pretty well.
