Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Spline subobject editing, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
In this lesson, we'll look at working in spline mode, which exists in an edible …spline object. Spline mode has many useful tools to …enhance your 2D shape. Edible spline level works similar to …element mode and edible poly mode. In that you can select component splines …within a larger spline object, move, rotate and scale them within the whole …spline object. We're going to start here with this …shape, which started as a circle and in vertex mode I just did a couple little …edits to make it this sort of crescent shape.…
In the modify panel I can select Spline here. …Or, I can go into the selection, roll-out and click Spline there. …One of the first tools I'm going to show you, is the ability to be able to copy a …spline, within sub-object mode. In Max we call copies clones. …But the ability to be able to copy them is very nice.…
I use the shortcut, by holding Shift, and moving this object. …These objects are now a part of the same edible spline, but they are attached to …each other and their splines are elements of each other. …
