Hello,
I have been slowly learning Lightwave and finally made the 10 minute Soccer ball
with Rail Bevel from SlineGod tutorial.
I made my first one no problem.
Now I can't for the life of me make one again. I get to the last step to do the inset and it scrambles the picture. It distorts my black patches. Sometimes it even locks up the computer. Is Rail Bevel that touchy? I followed the tutorial perfectly over 20 times and yet my first soccer ball is the only one that worked.
Anything else to check for?
Thank You

I'm not familiar with the tutorial Dean.
Perhaps Larry at SplineGod would be able to put you straight.

If your a student of Larry's you may also post a question at his student forum.

Been awhile since I did that used tutorial. Check the numeric panel and make sure the values do not go over 100% .

Based on your explanation it sounds like you are de-selected what you are supposed to be working on and it's applying that operation to the whole mesh.

Thanks everyone,
I got it working by opening Modeler with the main shortcut on the Desktop.
Works everytime now.
Oh well.
Live and learn.
Thanks for the responses.
