    Form Z error ID: 128: -35

    I am on a Mac so I can't be of any help. I have to say the current build of FZ on Mac is ok, but the earlier versions were really buggy. Not at all acceptable on a pro level software. Good luck in resolving your issue.

    Hi Michele, Sorry to hear that. If you could post more info, someone might be able to help. Some more details about when it occurs, some info about your computer and graphics card. Things like that. Does anyone else in your company have the problem, or are you working solo? I have not seen that particular error code

    Hi Michele, you might want to contact Tech directly via email. They are usually responsive. support@formz.com

    "Show Controls" not working?

    That is a feature that highlights an object when you mouse over it. You can turn that off in the preferences.

    Sharp edges/creases in sub-d models?

    You can turn off "show controls" and work directly with the geometry itself instead of the controls if that's what you are asking. I sort of go back and forth between the two. If you are referring to something else, then I am not following you.

    VRAY - Huge Material Problem!

    I know that RZ is a plugin, that's why it has to be registered separately. My point is, given that FZ is a small company with very limited $$ for development, I hope than other improvements don't come via a plug-ins rather than integrated. I have requested a symmetry tool and someone else suggested a plugin. I don't want yet another license to buy and keep up with.

    That's what I meant when I asked if you had the object selected.

    Sharp edges/creases in sub-d models?

    I started using Strata in 1997. I think it was called "Strata Blitz" or something like that. At that time there weren't many 3D apps for the Mac. Since then I worked in Cimena4D, 3DS Max, and now FZ. Anyhow, I have worked with a few ex Strata users and they all seem to be confused by FZ. There isn't much out there in the way of tutorial stuff beyond the little that FZ provides, so if you are on your own it's a pain. I just hunkered down and through a lot of trial and error (plus what I already knew) I have more or less gotten good at it. See the attachment on selecting points, edges, and faces.

    "Show Controls" not working?

    Just wondering if you ever got this sorted out?

    VRAY - Huge Material Problem!

    I'm holding off on V-Ray for now. I don't really need it, but I would like something better than Renderzone. I hope that future FZ improvements don't come via plugin but are integrated into the app itself.

    Sharp edges/creases in sub-d models?

    Adding "sharp" edges in FZ sub-d is basically the same as in most other programs. You essentially have 2 options: One is to use the "edge/point" sharpness tool. You have to be careful with this as too much starts to create a "pinched" effect. The other is to simply to add additional geometry with the "insert sequences" command. There is a lot that can be done with sub-d if you take the time to really learn the correct approach. With that being said, I don't mind adding that FZ's sub-d tool set leaves a lot to be desired when compared to Cinema4D or even Strata for that matter.

    "Show Controls" not working?

    Also, If you go to the top menu bar: Edit / key shortcuts you can get the “shortcuts manger” pallet from there you can select “load defaults”

    "Show Controls" not working?

    I take it the keyboard shortcut isn't working either? Are you using any sort of custom workspace? Those can be problematic at times. About the only thing I could suggest is a fresh install. Maybe someone else has another solution. Restarting the app always fixes it for me.

    "Show Controls" not working?

    I know this may sound silly, but do you have the object selected? If so and the "show controls" isn't working a restart usually corrects it. This happens to me quite a lot when doing sub d modeling. The "show controls" gets stuck "on" or "off" as well.
