    Making Subpatches...

    Hi,

    I'm watching this NewTek displacement video about creating hair or fur.
    ftp://ftp.newtek.com/products/LightW...splacement.mov

    I cannot, as simple as it seems, make subpatches. So here's what I'm doing.

    1. Create a sphere
    2. Subdivide Metaform
    3. Switch to Layout
    4. Open the Object Properties.

    In the Geometry tab, Why does my SubPatches: 0?

    What do I need to do differently?

    Much Obliged,

    Robbie

    Normally, to change polygon to sub-patch, and vice versa, you just press tab. If you have nothing selected, all polygons are converted. If some are selected, only they are converted.

    Nevermind... I got it.

    There's a little button on the Construct tab that says (Convert) SubPatch.
