How to Choose

(Updated 05/13/2021)

On this page, you will learn how to make selections before editing ArtMesh vertices and warp deformer split points.

 

About Editing Tools

The toolbar contains three tools to assist in editing objects.
(Arrow tool / Lasso Tool / Brush Selection tool)

Arrow Tools

Clicking on an object displays the mesh vertices and deformer split points.
Furthermore, vertices and division points can be selected by clicking on them.
(Hold [Shift] and click for multiple selections)

ArtMesh (vertex selection) Warp deformer (selection of split points)
In the case of an ArtMesh, selected vertices turn “red”. For warp deformers, the selected split point turns “purple”.

If multiple vertices or division points are selected, holding down [Shift] and clicking again will deselect only that portion.

Furthermore, you can select a rectangle by dragging it around.
You can select multiple rectangles by holding [Shift] and dragging, and you can partially deselect a rectangle by holding [Shift] + [Ctrl] and dragging.

Lasso Tool

The Lasso Selection Tool is a tool that allows you to make selections by enclosing them like a lasso.

Clicking on an object displays the mesh vertices and deformer split points.
Furthermore, by dragging around a vertex or division point, a partial selection is made.

You can hold [Shift] while dragging to enclose multiple items, and hold [Shift] + [Ctrl] while dragging to deselect the enclosed areas.

Brush Selection tool

The Brush Selection Tool is a tool that allows you to select different levels of influence as if you were shading with a brush.

Clicking on an object displays the mesh vertices and deformer split points.
Furthermore, the vertices and division points are dragged and painted in like a brush.

You can hold down [Shift] and drag to fill in multiple areas, and hold down [Shift] + [Ctrl] and drag to erase the filled-in areas.

Adjust brush size and weight

From the Tool Details palette, you can change the brush size and weight influence level.

Weight Impact level can be changed in %.
The lower the %, the smaller the amount of movement.
You can also adjust the pen pressure on the pen tab.
Brush Size Use [B] + [drag] to change the brush size.
Weight color You can change the color that will be applied during weighting.
