Polyreduction won't transfer to Max

Post by carrrottt09 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 6:36 pm

I can successfully reduce the poly count in Polygon Cruncher, but when I click 'apply' I return to 3ds Max and the reduction has not been applied.
I have tried 2011 and 2012.
I am using 64 bit and windows vista.
Thanks.

Hello,

You are true. Another user just report me the problem.

It seems that Polygon Cruncher 9.11 has a problem with hierarchy.
If you have some parenting in the scene, only the top level mesh are optimized.
Any child are left unoptimized.

This is something like a bug, and it will be corrected ASAP.

You can perform the following workaround if you want:

1) Open the scene to optime
2) Save it to a new file with the geometry unparented so there is no hierarchy.
3) The geometry in this file is then reduced using poly cruncher.
4) I then open up the original file with the hierarchy and choose import->replace.

Thanks you,
Manuel
