Title: vetex reducing script
Post by: neo on August 21, 2008, 03:38:12 am
i need a scipt that will reduce the number of vertexs in a complicated model so it takes up less graphics memory

The newest version of Terranim8or (http://www.biederman.net/leslie/terranim8or/terranim8or.htm) has a polygon reducer.  I believe it does triangulate the model, but with a vertex reducer that's what you'll ordinarily get unless you do it manually.

Kubajzz also has some great mesh cleanup scripts in his blog at CG-nation (http://cg-nation.com/community/index.php?action=blog;blog=28;category=17) that would definitely be useful for manual cleanup of your mesh.

Would it be possible for somebody to alter NickE's untrianglation script to do this. (change 4 quads into one larger quad)?

Yes, that script Neirao suggested is good for poly reduction... The problem is that it's not able to simplify an arbitrary mesh, it can only work with a mesh created by subdivision algorithm.

I've been working on a general poly reducer for a while and it's already finished, but the script execution takes several hours if the mesh has more than 2000 polys... I guess the algorithm needs some kind of optimalization ::) I hope to post it soon, stay tuned...

It's here!

I just released a poly reducer plugin, check it out:

It's not perfect, but I believe it may help some of you...
