Hey everyone,
I've got problems transferring model from LW to MAX.

Subd's look fine in LW, but when I export cage model via obj to MAX, apply Turbo Smooth, assign VRay materials to it I got this problem with smoothing.

I've tried different settings in Modeler Options, but when I turn OFF OBJ Merge points, Turbo Smooth no longer smooths model, just subdivides it.

Here is a sample of it, I wonder if everyone else had this problem before?

P.S. I ended up freezing model and transferring it to Max, due to deadline issues, but I'd like to know what's causing it.

Is it maybe that it's tri's instead of quads? As I recall if you collapse max geo all the way down to 'editable mesh' it becomes all triangles. Can't remember how obj comes in though.
