    Hi!

    Sorry to bring this up again. But when i do the following:

    Create a Cube in C4D
    Export it for Melange
    Load it in my external Melange app

    and do CreatePhongNormals (valid tag) the output is some values, but they're not the normals i should get.

    As far as i understood this, they're all just per index, means i don't have a normal per vertex, but per polygon index coming out of this array.

    e.g.: 8 vertices, 24 indices -> 24 normals.

    Strange thing is, some are even 0/0/0.

    This is really nagging me, any ideas?

    Thanks for your help...

    I can confirm this strange behaviour. The Cinema API version works fine though. I will report it as a bug.

    cheers,
