Smooth Mesh

Recommended Posts

Hi , WRT meshes. A mesh created in 3dsmax that is a cylinder - looks quite smooth and u dont see the curved edges looking jagged . When I convert the mesh to an .X file and display in a direct3d program - the curved edges look jagged - almost like a NON-antaliased line ... Any reason for this ?? Even if the mesh has alot of vertices , u can still notice it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'm not certain that I understand the problem, AND I'm using an ancient version of 3ds Max (r3), but when you create geometry in 3d max r3 there's a Smooth option in the parameters window which is checked by default. I'm not sure what it does but I assume it's adding vertices to create a smoother image. I see geometry in 3d max the way it will appear after an .x file conversion if I UNCHECK THE SMOOTH BOX.
