Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

When importing a decimated mesh, why does the vert count double or triple?

When I import the mesh, vertices count doubles or triples, can i prevent that to happen? I am importing a decimated mesh as FBX.

Hi SongOfDeath,

What programs are you using specifically in your workflow? From hearing decimated mesh, is it something like creating the highpoly in Zbrush, decimating it, and then export?

Tried with other meshes and it doesn't have to be decimated, when exporting obj files vertices count becomes 5 times more, with fbx it becomes 2-3 times more.

Could you post a screenshot of the vertex count before export and another screenshot of it after export?
