Retopo : polygon reduction tool

Recommended Posts

After Auto Retopo , it would be helpfull to be able to reduce the number of polygons with a polygon reduction tool  tool like those we can find on some 3D modeling software.

It would help a lot to get faster models for real time apps instead of manually retopo.

You can do some significant poly reduction by using the DELETE EDGES tool, holding the SHIFT key down, to delete entire edgeloops at a time. I have asked for a DOT-LOOP/DOT RING feature like there is in 3ds Max (where it selects every other loop or ring), but until we get that, this is the best way to approach it.

I know manually you can do some work, but we need a quick way, to reduce poly for high res models.

But his is mainly for poly reduction on a retopo from Autopo tool, most time when you select a loop you have many selected, because Autopo makes intersecting loops.

Well, an automatic polygon reducers would be a great addition to retopo.

63 000 to 10 000 polys.

Try polygon cruncher. It is gaming industry standard.
