Mesh no longer smooth and can't figure out why. Maya LT mesh.

It’s chair guy again. Solved my original problem, but had to re-edit my chairs to drop the seat down 6 inches. After I did that, my mesh isn’t importing smooth anymore. All the polys have hard edges, and I’m searching like crazy to figure THIS one out. I don’t want to waste my whole day on a chair, but if that’s what I have to do, then that’s what I have to do. I can’t find any options for smoothing out the edges, and uncle google is really disappointing me on resolving this problem. I realize this is more of a Maya problem than an Unreal Engine problem, but their forums take days to get an answer, and I need something more immediate.

Thanks!

And any good pointers as to where to come up with some good information on texturing and smoothing and such would be welcome, too.

Have you enabled “export smoothing groups” in your export settings? :slight_smile:

Ah! That did it, thanks! :slight_smile: Not sure how THAT got changed :rolleyes:, but they’re smooth again!
