pixar eyeball question

after building the eyeball, should I join the parts together as one mesh or just parent the iris, lense, etc together? Does it even make a difference?

A mesh can have multiple materials assigned to it, so merging all of the parts of the eye-ball together may make it a lot easier for you to manage. You wouldn’t have to worry about selecting parts other than the parent.

I agree with merging the parts together. I originaly did it separate but it’s easier to texture when joined and you get less aliasing. It’s also easier to keep things in the right place.

thanks for the help!
