Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video The Graphite Modeling interface: The Visibility, Align, and Properties menus, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
The Graphite Modeling Interface gives you access to a variety of tools. …In this video, we'll take a look at how some of these tools work to help you …organize your meshes while modeling. We'll take a look at the Visibility, …Align and Property menus to see their tools and what they are used for. …We're going to start with the Visibility menu. …Visibility, when you're in Subobject mode, deals with hiding and unhiding …specific components. I'm going to start by going into this …spherical object's polygons, and I'm going to select a group of these polygons.…
They are red, that means they're selected. …In the Visibility menu, it's a very simple menu. …We have Hide Selected, Hide Unselected, and Unhide All. …If I click on Hide Selected, you can see that it's hidden those selected polygons. …Then if I go into Unhide All it will unhide those selected ones. …Now this only works in that specific component mode. …So if I am in poly mode, and I hide those polygons.…
If I go into vertex mode, and I want those vertices back, I can't say Unhide …
