Unexplained normal reversing in Sculpt Room


Recommended Posts

Hey there Coaters,


I am having an odd problem importing a hi poly .fbx into the sculpt room.

I import it and as usual hit enter to set the mesh without modifications, then when I switch to the 'build clay' brush, my models normals come up reversed.


This is one component of a larger model. All components are built with the same technique within Maya.


I had a workmate look over it and try to save it out of Max, yet to no avail, still reversed normals.


The only solution I found was to do  'Combine' within Maya. By adding another piece of geo to it, the problem goes away and both meshes have correct normals when imported to the sculpt room.


Any ideas why this would be happening?
