I am learning on Lightwave 7.5 on the PC.

I have made a capsule then did a boolean to hollow it out. Then I put a ball inside of the capsule and made the capsule transparent. When I go to render it....I can see through it and the ball is smooth but the capsule is faceted.

What do I do to correct this?

Thanks for the help

You need to make sure each surface has smoothing turned on.

I strongly recommend that you buy the Lightwave Manual!

go to the surface editor (About the 5th menu item down on the left side of your screen) at the bottom of the window is a check box to turn on smoothing. On PC shortcut is F5. Not sure on MAC.
