Epic games goes with PolyBoost! Epic games is one of many prominent companies already using PolyBoost in production. Here is what some of the artists at Epic games have to say about PolyBoost:
have for any modeler using 3dsmax’s poly tools. Polyboost adds a
level of interactive modeling currently missing from 3dsmax. These modeling
tools have been a significant time saver in the production process here
at Epic Games."
"Polyboost has been a great help for me in my modeling workflow here at Epic Games. I have been using it now for a while and found it to be very useful when doing poly modeling. The draw polygon feature is particularly useful when generating a low poly mesh from a high poly mesh, a procedure usually done when an artist is generating normal map from a high poly model. This feature is also very useful because it allows you to actually pick the surface you want to create polygons on. The short cut keys for most of the features are very friendly as well. The ability to apply 3-5 different actions by simply switching/combining between shift, alt, control is great!! Patternmaker as well had very good capabilities when generating patterns with selections. I use it every day and will continue to integrate Polyboost in my workflow on a regular basis."
