In this video, we'll be taking a look at how to transform objects in 3ds Max. …Transform is just the super special, fancy way of saying moving or adjusting …position, rotation, or scale of an object. …Here I have three different objects, a cube, a sphere and a cone. …And my current tool is on select objects, which allows me to select the object. …I have three tools here, select and move, select and rotate, select and uniform …scale from which I can draw my transformations.…
I'll click on select and move. Which will allow me to select, and then …move any object. When that tool is invoked, and I have an …object selected, I get to see what's called a gizmo. …This gizmo will allow me to move the object in any one of the axes or planes. …So, when I select the cube, I'm able to move that object by highlighting it's …axis in x, and now it will, when I click and drag, only move in the X axis.…
Similarly I can move it just in the Y or just in the Z. …But I can also move in a plane, this is the ZY plane and I'm moving the box …
