Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Vertex subobject editing for splines, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
A vertex is a single point whose sole property is it's position in 3D space …which is defined by the X, Y and Z axes. Vertices form the basic structure for 3D …objects and in this video we'll be looking at working with the vertex level, …in an editable poly spline object, which is the core of editing 2D shapes, to be …used in 3D modeling. Editable spline mode gives you access to …the vertex level. Here's a circle that I created by going …into, create shapes, clicked on circle and in the front view port I clicked and …dragged to create it. To convert this into an editable spline, …I am going to right-click over the circle in the modifiers stack and go to editable …spline, this gives us access to the three component levels within this circle.…
The vertex mode are these points, once we select them we can move them around, we …can edit the (UNKNOWN) handle, now the (UNKNOWN) handle's movement depends on …the transform gizmo of the move tool, if I want to move it lets say up and down. …It's letting me because the Y axis in the gizmo is active. …
