3D art from Design and Carve - 1

Post by Phil »

I have the Design and Carve 1 collection. Recently I used components from the collection to create the scene attached. When I was working on the scene I found it very convenient to open another instance of Aspire and open the "All Animals" file. With this file open I was able to easily decide which component I wanted. Then I could copy and past the component into my scene.
Now I am wondering if I shouldn't have used the larger components from the collection. Did I loose some resolution by working with the smaller models?

Vector art size does not matter. You can scale them to any size you need without destroying the quality as happens with bitmaps. Dale

Thanks Dale,

I know that vectors do not get distorted the same as bitmaps when they are enlarged but the 3D components are not vectors. Also I am questioning my process because in the Aspire tutorials it is recommended to create models as large as practical for the application. They say it is not best practice to create a small component and then enlarge it. I'm questioning how the models in the Design and Carve series respond to the way I used them.
