    Default Adding Extra Vertices to a polygon????

    Hello Folks. My first post, so wish me luck and please bare with me. I've been trying to add extra vertices to an object I've created ( in 3ds max) but with no luck. Seems that the help files and also going the "Google" route has only shown how to add vertices to SPLINES only. I'm definitly new to this program and I've got much to learn but I've worked in TrueSpace and the adding of edges and vertices were pretty cut and dry. Am I missing something here? Appreciate any help or step by steps. Peace. gk

    It's pretty simple, actually, and there are lots of ways. One I personally use is to select an edge and, in the modify panel, click Insert Vertex. Then, I simply click on the edge I want the new vertex to sit. That's it.
    Cheers!

    As an extra tip to Ricks tip, once youve inserted your vertex on a edge, go to the modify panel and click on chamfer. If you chamfer a vert on a edge, itll actually duplicate it in equal distances. Its pretty cool. Hope it helps. Good luck.

    Greetings to both Mr. Eloy and Nelpiper. Appreciate both your quick replies. I wrote a comeback to Mr. Eloy's reply yesterday evening but for reasons unkown it never made up here. Anywho, I'm glad that it didn't make it up 'cause it would have made me look like an idjot. I really don't know how I missed that dang on "Insert Vertex" button but I did. Many times. Oh, well I'll just mark it up to climate change. Thanx, again to you both. Hope we can do this again sometime, I'll try not to make it so easy for ya
    Peace. Have a good one. gk

    The only way i have found out is by running a connect though the poly turn edge faces on in the sub-object choose the edges level example select the left edge and then hold the control button and select the right edge under edit edges choose choose connect. In the p.view max will show you a line you can slide and pinch the lines together if you have more then one. Once you have done this then click the ok button you can see more Vertices when you select the Vertices sub-object

    you should have really added the amount of segs before you converted it down

    Good luck

    Appreciate Mr. Datacrasher. I guess another way to get a few extra vertices in my mesh ( a bit complicated tho for this beginner). I will give 'er a try. Peace. Thanx again. gk
