After several weeks, splinegod finally sent me dvds that work. So I began to watch the vids right away. I'm close to finishing the first model, but there are some annoying problems.

1. Smooth shade view not working?

I'm using smooth shade for perspective view, but it looks the same as in the flat shade view. Is it supposed to be like that?
2. Messed up surface..

Well u know about smooth shade in the view window-i also assume u know about having to check smoothing is on in the surface editor also! U can also change the threshold here also

I suspect that u have some points in your geometry that need welding though. Do this by selecting the points n question and in your detail tab- use-points-weld! Should smooth it out.

U may also wanna look at subpatching or subdividing those polys for xtra smoothness!
