Now use the top view to bring in the corners to something more like an egg shape. 22). TEAM LinG - Live, Informative, Non-cost and Genuine! 22 Making a turtle shell from a box Top Tip This is a great tip for smoothing low polygonal meshes. Select polygon in Sub-Object mode and either ‘Control ϩ A’, or marquee-select them all, so they all turn red. Scroll down to the very bottom of the R-hand menu to Surface Properties and a box called Auto Smooth. The default for Auto Smooth is 45, but it can be cranked up to 180.

Chains can be created to include ancestors (parents’ parents) and descendants (children’s children). All complex animation uses the same technique. It is a way of animating called Forward Kinematics. We need three states for our turtle, and currently it should be in a good position for the second state, apart from the tongue. So turn on the Auto Key and let us start animating. Move the slider to frame 15 and position the tongue inside the shell. Click on each leg, in turn and under Motion, Click on Position to create a Key.

Type in 180 and hit the Auto Smooth button, the shell will become rounded and smoother, without adding any more polygons.
