In this video, we'll be taking a look at how to use the ProBoolean inside of 3DS Max. …A boolean, simply put, is the intersection, the subtraction, or the …addition of two or more objects together. For example, I'm going to go ahead and …create a couple of primitives. There we go, take a look at these primitives. …Now what I'm going to do is, I'm going to intersect the sphere with the cube.…
Right at the corner, here. What a Boolean will do, will give you …three different options, generally, of what operation you need. …I can take a sphere shape out of the box for example, or I can take a box shape …out of this sphere. Let's go ahead and try one of those operations. …The first thing you need to decide is which of the objects you need to take …away or to add to. In this case, we're going to be …subtracting from this sphere. So, I'll select this sphere, and I'll …need to go into Compound Objects to be able to access ProBoolean.…
Without an object selected, you'll see you don't have access to it. …
