convert to sub then back to mesh
« on: February 25, 2010, 07:47:33 pm »

the way i model is when its a mesh at 180. the final is almost always converted to mesh. i always convert to mesh to see what it looks like then tweak it a bit the convert it back to mesh. (i double click the object make the subdivisions 0-0 (which puts it to default 0-1 or 1-2 i think) then i convert to mesh, double click on the object and set it to 180)

hopefully i explained my process. it eats up a bit of time as well.

my question is: can you make a script to use hot keys or buttons to do just that? i would just model when its sundivided but it gets really hard to see and some points r hidden under the mesh.

Sadly no, there are no hotkeys that can change levels of subdivision or hotkeys to converto mesh/subdivision objects (or turn up the smooth level.)  You'll just have to continue the way you're doing it! Sorry, but scripts just don't allow for it currently from what I know.
