Body objects
show user profile  Westcoast13
If I import a lot of body objects from CAD files, is there any way of converting everything to 'Fine' from 'Medium' without doing it individually.

I'm sure there must be an easy way, Maxscript if nothing else but I know nothing about scripting!

You can select all your Body Objects and set their quality in one go through the Body Utility.

"You can select all your Body Objects and set their quality in one go through the Body Utility. "

Oh my days, what!? I've been dealing with a lot of body objects, and in most cases where I can't be bothered to re-model them I've just converted them back to poly and done an auto-optimisation, which is pretty messy.

I'll have to look into this.

I usually use the Fine setting which tidies them up a treat, but if you have 3000 objects, selecting them all indivually, clicking fine then converting to poly is a long winded task!

3000? No no... nothing silly like that,

more like 50,000+
