RE: Off center enough?

  • Whoandwhatitis by Whoandwhatitis moderator

    Hello @lowellbuzz, That's a great question for this picture. The vertex is very, very close to the center. Based on the information in the FAQ, I would be tempted to mark it as an off-center vertex:

    The computer is trying to remove any other lines that originate from the center, so anything else you see should be tracks that the computer considers not to come from the original collision. (They might still look like they do, see "backwards tracks" and other artifacts)

    Mark them as you see fit. I know that I have been inconsistent with how I've marked things that appear close to the center, but it does look like this one would count as an OCV with four branches (see Slice view for a more clear representation).
