My Claws Are All Chunky!

The claws are designed at a resolution level useful for a “full body” action scene. For close up renders, like the ones for the product promotional pictures, use SubD to make a high resolution version. The claws have been specifically designed to work with SubD for lightweight scene impact but maximum versitility.

To add subD to your claws:

  • select them in the Scene tab.
  • Right Click (command-click on a Mac) on the Scene tab and go to Edit → Convert to Sub-D

Studio will pop up an ARE YOU SURE message. You're sure ;)

SubD will automatically load in with one level of sub-division - this is a good level for mid range renders - upper body portraits with the claws prominent in your scene but not right in the camera. You can turn SubD up to two levels of sub-division - this is a good level for extreme close ups. I used two levels of subdivision for the main product image and all the material thumbnails :)
