View Full Version : Multishift Problem

08-26-2006, 09:08 PM
Hi everyone,

Was wondering if you guys have been experiencing the 2 point polygons that Multishift leaves behind. It seems to leave a 2 point polygons on the last polygon I'm shifting. I guess I can use the statistic panel to remove it, but is it suppose to do that?

Edit: Correction, I can't use the statistic panel to remove it. The 2 point polygon is actually a 4 point polyline with 2 point on top of each other on each end.

These odd 4 sided 2 point polys are created when you weld a polygon to itself in the right order. There odd and hard to find and remove if you didn't make them on purpuse. I find it unlikly that multishift makes them but who knows it's possible.

I acully made them once to create hard edges on a sub-d mesh. Since they were only 2 point i could line and edge with them and they would break the sub-d flow and created hard edges.

How best to remove them.

Actually, I made a mistake, you can disreguard this post. I need to slow down before I post a problem. Anyway, I was basically using my left Mouse button to drag the shape out, then I right click to set the shift before I start on the next shift. However, after I complete the last shift with the right mouse button, I also hit the space bar to drop it. The space bar also sets the final shift before it drops the tool. This basically creates 1 shift directly on top of another. So you have too shift just sitting on the same space.
