I created a bunch of metaballs, assigned them a material and ticked the Smoothing on. But it seems that the Smoothing is not working for metaballs? Only way to get a smooth surface is to put very high Render Metaball Resolution, and it is not a good thing.

Anyone else having the same problems?

yep me too hypervoxels work better but less control
surface is very bad even with very high subdivison I think this must be a bug

I did a quick test and it does seam to be different, but then again its been quite awhile since I tried it. In the objects properties is a render metaballs resolution value. The default is 10. I had to up it to 80 before it became smooth. It may be possible to go lower as I took some large jumps in values.

Oh BTW try changing the smoothing with the resolution at 80. Smoothing does work.
