    Text import from Illustrator help

    I have brought some text into lightwave from Illustrator, worked fine but I have some extra artifacts(fake Geometry) that is not selectable. See image please.


    How do I fix this?

    Also I did try the text tool and it does the same

    Thanks

    Does it also render like that? Its been a long time playing with logo's. I think it's just a opengl problem. To get rid of it you need some extra cuts.

    Sometimes just using Triple on your polygons, then merging them back fixes the display bug. But it's a good practice not to have Ngons like that at render time.
    Polygons (even quads) that fold into themselves (think of a hang glider shape) can cause display bugs and rendering problems.

    Did not try as I was struck odd by what I saw. But I will take a look. Thanks for the reply

    As the others have said, but also give this Pictrix script a whirl. Unigon on this page is also extremely useful.

    Don't you also need to use an older Illustrator format to loading into LW? V5 or V8 I think, can't remember which...
