    question:
    where can i find the slice polygons tool in softimage's xsi version 3.5. i'm going through some tutorial that is actually aimed at version 4.0. there, it is listed under model toolbar > modify > poly. mesh, whereas it's not placed there in v. 3.5 - or is it listed with a different title than in v. 4.0?

    the included xsi search database didn't show anything.

    as far as i understand you can divide the polygon mesh in different sized triangles and squares to better work on body parts like eyes, nose and mouth.

    ahhh i just realised your probally refering to the split polygon tool?

    use "\" and and click on the places you want to split the polygon. note that you have to click on an edge or a vertex first you cant just click in the middle of a polygon. you can also select two edges or an edge loop and use shift+d to divide them.
