Mesh > Paint Reduce Weights Tool


Paint Reduce Weights works in conjunction with the Mesh > Reduce feature to let you reduce the number of polygons in a mesh while attempting to retain the shape of the original. The Paint Reduce Weights Tool lets you paint on the mesh to specify a region on the mesh where you want the polygons to be reduced.

NoteIn order to use the Paint Reduce Weights Tool you must have previously used the Reduce feature with Keep Originals turned on so that a polyReduce node is created for the object you want to reduce.

You do this by first selecting the polygon mesh, and then selecting Mesh > Reduce > . Turn on the Keep Original option and then click Reduce. You then paint on the original mesh and a copy of the mesh is reduced.
