I have a delicate problem with my Yazneg model...  :evilthinkin: If anyone knows a way to not only flip normals, but to unite a mesh where some polygons are flipped (like the video), that would be swell  :whatoa: I think it can be done in 3DStudioMax, but I'm not sure from what client the video is grabbed.

Amazing... Spent all evening trying to find a solution, and shortly after posting this I discovered that a vertex on the front was connected through the mesh to a vertex on the back shoulder... A result of the darn transparency by default in ZBrush, when doing retopology. This aparently made large portions of the mesh flip. When I deleted the connected vertex, the mesh was flipped correctly all over. Oh well, never mind then  :themenace:

It is incredibly easy to flip and unify normals in 3ds Max, so it's not a large concern in the future if you ever encounter a similar issue again.

Then perhaps I can ask you for assistance, if it happens again?  :blush: That would take a load off from my stress of this happening again...  :whathuh: In Zb you can Flip Normals, but that goes for the entire mesh. There a million functions, but none of them can Unify normals. Perhaps in next version.
