Dupplicating Vertices
show user profile  babarorhum
Hello everyone,

I am developing an Iphone app which will import 3D objects via OBJ. format (or collada eventually). To test the import function, i have installed the 30-day trial version of the 3DS studio max 2012 and have exported the objects into a .OBJ file.

At first i thought the display issue i had in the app was related to my own software but then i have pointed towards the creation of the object in 3DS max.

The issue seems to be coming from the fact that i didn't "unpack" the vertices; and that i have a pool of non-dupplicate vertices.

So it seems the solution to my problem is "simply" to dupplicate the vertices; thing is i am very much a beginning in 3D modeler in general and failed to find the right functionality due to the fact i am quite foreign to the terminology.

I'd appreciate if someone could point me towards the right direction. I am sure my question is very simple for many of you, may even appear stupid :)

I don't understand the question mate. Maybe some screen shots might help?

There are loads of clued up people here who i'm certain will know what your problem is!

I have no idea what unpacking vertices means.
I really can't work out what is being asked.

The "unpacking" word is a bit unfamiliar to me as well. To make it simple, please see my post and the related replies:

Especially the last post about the duplicate matrix paragraph. I understand the idea and concept behind it but i don't know how to make my way through 3ds max to reach this state; and i would not like it have to create a private loader to reach this result. Lightwave seems to be doing it; so i guess 3dsmax does it too :)

My thanks in advance for any pointer you could provide .
