Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Transforming objects, part of Up and Running with MotionBuilder.
- Let's take a look at how to select…and manipulate objects, in other words,…how to transform, rotate, and scale them.…So here we have a simple scene with a car body,…and if we want to select an object,…we can do it in several different ways.…We can just left-click on the object.…So, if I left-click on the body of the car or the tire,…you can see that it highlights.…Now, down here in the Navigator,…you can see that I have my Car_Body,…and if I hit this little plus sign,…you'll see that down here I also have…each one of the tires.…
So these are separate objects…arranged in a hierarchy.…And we'll get to hierarchies in just a bit.…But if you want, you can select the individual object.…You can also hold down the shift key…and select multiples,…or you can select them from within the Navigator.…So, again, I can select the Car_Body,…and then select all of these objects as well.…Now if you want to deselect something,…you just hit Shift D, for deselect,…and that empties the selection set.…
Now, I can also rubber band select objects.…
