Hey guys, I am trying to export an LSystem with metaballs and I can't seem to get it right…

How can I get rid of the pollys for a more smooth surface, and yes I have used smoothing.

Thanks!

Okay, I am stupid… Sop is a node…

Okay so I have that hooked up and it's not doing much?

try a few things:

- make sure the normal sop is set to points and not vertex
- try adding a fuse SOP to connect points (I cannot remember what convert meta actually outputs.. if you middle mouse, is it a polygon?)

you need to apend/place a convert node before the normal sop
set it to convert to polygons
then you can get the “soft” normals you're looking for
