That is really strange…if those images were all from the process you followed that seems more of the polygons were lost doing it that way.
The picture you posted in the other thread didn’t seem so bad.
I had thought from the other picture that the polygons may have been hidden under the arm of genesis you sometimes see that happening with smoothing.
Well that blows one idea out of the water. Have you tried contacting Predatron?
Not much point to working on the cord issue until this is resolved.
