Donation credits

December 8, 2009 at 1:19 pm 11 comments

Someone recently reminded me about this in email.  Originally I planned to give donators credit on this site.  My plan was to launch this along with a system of incentives, whereby some random subset of donators would receive free bmesh t-shirts.   I wanted to do this all at once, but I ran into problems with the tshirt manufacturer I chose that I’ve not yet resolved.

In hindsight, I suppose I got too obsessed with the gimmicky aspect of my plan and forgot about the important part.  This is something I intend to rectify.  Look for an official donators credit list in the next day or two.

    BTW, if whoever provided me with the blog logo could pipe up, that’d be great. I can’t remember if it was through email or comments here on the blog, but you definitely deserve to be credited for it (and I apologize for not thinking of crediting you earlier, yeek).

    It’s the 6th comment on your “about” page 🙂

    with Bmesh – Windows – 24415 i get this rendering:

    with this wireframe model:

    even without the edges in the model (a pure ngon model) the lines are still there and shading smooth looks bad too

    and with another material is looks so :

      Are all your ngons flat? Also, are you using edge split?

      Ngon shading is kindof tricky; it only works in a few cases (and is something I don’t have time to fix yet, especially as the research for solving this problem is still somewhat new).

      In general, ngons are only useful if they’re flat-shaded and planar, or if you’re using subsurf. Supporting more use cases is something I want to do, but will involve a bit of research and development (basically involves tessellating then subdividing the mesh, and interpolating data from the original topology using an interpolation method that works with ngons).

        what means flat?
        I used loop and knife cut and doesn’t even know what edge split is 🙂

        that my blend file if you will need it:

        all the vertices in a face are in a flat plane.

        all the vertices in a face are in a flat plane. (you mean in a triangle??)

        Go to normal transform mode, select a face and press z-z to scale along the face normal. If the vertices do not move, it’s planar, if they do it’s not.

        I nearly tried every face of my model and none of them moved, when tried to scale them along their face normal..

        can you post the .blend file on
