Hi Everyone,

I haven't been around for a year but I've still been using LW alot.

Anyway, I'm working on something important and I need to have the morphs work correctly. I have the 3DD mesh Reknitter plugin and have used it on my mesh but no matter how many times I do it to either mesh (base or target), it just won't reorder correctly. The mesh contains a few triangles which may be the problem but I can't remake the mesh or change it.

I could solve the problem if I had a mesh conforming plugin but the native conforming plugin sucks and BG Conform Plus doesn't have an option which allows full mesh matching.

So..... My questions are thus....

1) Does anyone know of any reliable point reordering plugins for morphing?

2) Are there any point/polygon conforming plugins that can match the background mesh completely?

Oh, I'm still using 8.5 so any plugins need to workable in that version.

Cheers,
Revanto :p

PS: Does anyone else think that the VT icon :vticon: looks a bit like the Autobot symbol if you squint at it?

There is Push tool http://www.trueart.eu/?URIType=Directory&URI=Products/Plug-Ins/Push
and recently released EasyRetopology

These are part of TrueArt's Modeling Pack http://modelingpack.trueart.eu

But they're both LW v9.0+, recommended v9.5..
I have not seen orders from v8.x users well in maybe 2 years?

I am not sure what do you meant by "full bg mesh matching.".. Can be not full bg mesh matching?

I'm not looking for a commercial plugin.

I mean that both main and target meshes have the same number of polygons and points so that the main mesh should be able to conform perfectly to the target mesh. No two points would overlap, either. I don't think it's hard to do as a plugin. It's just that nobody has ever done it. 3DD Mesh Reknitter was supposed to work like that I think but it doesn't sometimes. As long as there at reference points or polygons to work from a plugin like that should work easily.

try ko pointfit

KO PointFit is worse than BG Conform.

Thanks anyway.
