    Hi Guys,
    I'm running into a weird issue with my deformer plugin. I have setup a function that takes the point object of a deformer and calculates the vertex normal for each point of the object. So this function returns a Vector* array containing the normals of all points. Everything works fine with this function, I am able to deform off of the vertex normal direction. I call this function from within ObjectData::ModifyObject() using the provided BaseObject *op parameter.

    However, if I switch views in the editor (i.e. perspective to top) and the object I am deforming is a primitive the vertex normals are lost. But, if prior to switching the editor view I convert the primitive to a point object everything behaves fine after switching views.

    Thanks in advance,
    Josh

    Without any code it is hard to tell what could be the problem.
