I purchased a 3D model of a car. It went into Zaxwerks Pro Animator GREAT. Everything is awesome. When I export it out of Motion set to Export Rendering = Software I get a hood that looks not smooth. Any way to smooth it out?
I exported all three render setting with no luck, set to best as well and makes no difference.

Try going into the "Object" tab and going into the Info section, and change the "Hard Shading Angle" to "40". If that value does not work well for you, you can try changing it to different values and seeing if it works better for you.

Object tab? I'm not sure I understand. The Object button only has options to import illustrator elements, create text, etc, etc. Not sure if I'm looking in the right place.
If I create the element and never close it out and re-open it...it maintains its smooth surface. It only goes crappy once I save, close out Motion and then re-open it. So I've written down all of the nurmeric values for the animation so I can always create it from scratch every time the client makes a change. Ouch.

I tried it twice and it keeps crashing Motion. I'll try again next week after the computer can sit unplugged for the weekend. The spot is due in an hour and the solution I wrote about in my last post has been getting me by.
