Disappearing Mesh Glitch and Fix Maya 2012
Hello everyone, Shane Beck here I wanted tomake this tutorial really quickly just to talk about a glitch that I keep comingacross in Maya. So the problem is basically you open a file and yourmesh just isn't there. If you're not following my Zelda modeling series, I assureyou I did not start with the sandals, the hair, and bracelets and whatnot. There issupposed to be a body here, but there isn't.
So if you open up the outliner right here and find your mesh, 'cuz itshould actually still be there. and you're going to have to reassign thematerial to it. But since you can't middle clickdraganddrop onto something you can't see, you're going to have to hold down theright click, go down to quot;Assign Existing Material,quot; andjust choose any material. This might present a problem, in that younow have a single material for your entire mesh. Now if I put it on the dress material,
her hands are now a different material, same with her fingernails. If you just hit undo then it will fix it. So you just undo to what it was before,and for some reason now it's working. Now there's another way that thiscan show itself, and that's the edges on your mesh you've set it to a soft edge,
but it's still appears hard. If you'vegone through the normals and you've uh. checked to make sure that it's that it is indeed a soft edge, that the vertex normalsare correct, the face normals are all correct, and for some reason the edge just isn't smooth shading, this can be fixed in the same exact way just by reassigning the material and thenundoing.
Another thing that this can causeis certain materials on the mesh disappearing, and if you go back and attempt toassign them individually, weird things will happen, like it will assign the material to different things other than what you've selected, and if that happens if you save and thenreopen the mesh then assign the material, and then undo, then it will be how do you expect it tobe.
But yeah I just wanted to make this tutorialjust in case anybody was having any similar troubles and this has been Shane Beck,thank you very much for wat.
