Edit the shape of a conformed object.
- We've conformed this road to the landscape…but we want to cause the road to hug the contours…of the landscape and not just be a straight line.…And to do that we'll use the Move Conform tool.…I'll select the road and in the freeform tab…of the modeling ribbon we have the conform tools.…And the Move Conform brush is one that looks like…a sphere that has four arrows on it.…So click on Move Conform brush, and we have some…options here in a floating window.…
I'm going to attach that, dock it onto the ribbon itself.…And then just click and drag to move the road around.…And it's going to stick to the landscape just perfectly.…Alright I'll undo that and let's talk about…the shape of the brush here.…This is view dependent, and that means if I zoom out…or dolly back then that brush will have…a much greater effect over a larger area.…I do that, or if I get in very close,…again it's screen dependent.…
I'll undo that.…We also have the ability to control the falloff…and the full strength radius for the brush.…And that's what these are up here,…

Learn how to get around the 3ds Max interface and customize it to suit your preferences. Discover how to model different objects using splines, polygons, subdivision surfaces, and freeform sculpting. Then, learn to construct hierarchies, add cameras and lights, and animate with keyframes. Author Aaron F. Ross also takes an in-depth look at materials and texture mapping, as well as options for rendering engines such as Arnold and ART.
