    Eps error

    Hi all. I remember seeing a video somewhere on how to fix errors like in the attached. Would anyone know where I might find that tutorial. Also is there an easy way to fix or stop this from happening when I import an eps object from illustrator? Maybe a plugin?

    Add more edge divisions.

    You could also Triple it.

    Sorry to be so simple. How would I do that tripling the edges?

    I'm curious : does this appear in the render ? It looks like a modeler opengl bug to me

    It is, and it bugs me too! When I see that I have to triple it!

    You'd be tripling the polygon. What that'll do is split up your polygon to be only triangles.

    If you want to manually splice up your polygon you can use the Add Edges too.

    Sometimes, these don't show in the render but they bug me enough that I fix them. In many cases, the render did look better but it wasn't a show stopper prior to fixing. Of course, if you're going to round the edges, these will definitely screw that up, so must be fixed.
