Deform a mesh by painting in the view.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie…we saw how to load the free form modeling tools.…Now let's take a deeper look…at the parameters for the push/pull brush.…I'll select my terrain object…and on the Free Form tab of the ribbon,…click Push/Pull…and drag across…and I previously increased the size…and offset so I can see I've got some rolling hills there.…So, size is of course the radius of the brush…and you can change it here…but it's just easier to use the keyboard shortcut.…
To change the radius of the brush,…hold down control and shift at the same time…and drag the mouse button up or down…and we can change that radius,…so now I've got a smaller brush…or a larger brush.…Then we come to strength.…Strength is not really strength, it's sensitivity.…With a higher strength you'll get a greater amount…of deformation if the speed of your stroke is constant.…To demonstrate, I'll erase what I've done…by clicking the Cancel button…and I'll set the strength to a value of 0.1…and drag my mouse across…and I saw almost no change.…

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.
