SubD

From Object

The ToSubD command converts supported object types into SubD objects.

Input

Mesh, Extrusion, Surface, Sub-surface

Command-line options

UseMesh
ControlPoints

Turns mesh vertices into SubD control points (left).

Location

Turns mesh vertices into SubD surface points (right).

Conceptually, this is the difference between what the Curve and InterpCrv commands do. The Curve command turns input points into the curve's control points. The InterpCrv command creates a curve to pass the input points.

MeshCreases

Specifies whether unwelded mesh edges (red) will be turned into creased edges.

1) Input mesh 2) MeshCreases=Yes 3) MeshCreases=No
MeshCorners

Specifies whether the boundary corner vertex of a quad mesh face will be creased or smoothed.

1) Input mesh 2) MeshCorners=Yes 3) MeshCorners=No
UseSurface
ControlPoints

Turns NURBS surface control points into SubD control points.

Use this option if you are doing "Class A" modeling and need to join separate SubDs into a single SubD.

Location

The output SubD has the best fit to the input NURBS surface. Extra faces might be inserted.

SurfaceCorners

Specifies whether NURBS surface corners will turn into creased or smooth SubD vertices.

1) Input NURBS surface 2) SurfaceCorners=Yes 3) SurfaceCorners=No
CopyMeshTextureCoordinates

Texture coordinates on the mesh are transferred to the SubD as custom texture coordinates.

The custom texture coordinates will be permanently lost if another texture mapping is applied to the SubD.

DeleteInput

Deletes (Yes) or keeps (No) the input object.
