Low Poly to High Poly or High Poly to Low Poly
on 01-07-2005 11:40 AM
I remember a discussion about this sometime in the past but I think it may have been on the old boards since I just searched through all 4 pages here and could not find it.
The discussion was about creating high poly meshes for normal maps and whether people created thier high poly mesh first or thier low poly mesh first. I seem to remember that most people felt it was best to create the high poly mesh first and that there were some good reasons listed for this. Can some of you who have dealt with this please post which way you work and what your reason is?
