edges not round
on Apr 27, 2007 at 1:16:48 am

I have created this 3D graphic in Invigorator for after effects using a free object model
The balloons don't appear perfectly smooth and round around the edges...
Is there a setting I am missing?
I have after effects set to display high quality.

Hi egeefay,

You could try selecting the balloon objects and changing the hard shading angle in the object stats box-- this can smooth the appearance of the surface a bit in some cases.

However, I suspect you'll need to increase the density of the mesh by subdividing the polygons and smoothing the surface.... to do this, you'll need access to one of a variety of 3D apps with that capability. Do you have anything like that? If not, I can think of some options, including open source modelers.

Or, just use the following custom edge:

Right before the final render, type in the following object faceting value: (0.01)

BTW. Are you using Invigorator 4.0.6? If so upgrade your software as 4.0.6 had an issue with polygon smoothing.
