Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting basic transforms, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this movie, we're going to look at adjusting basic transform.…We have scale, rotation, position, and all that kind of stuff, and on the surface,…that sounds really simple, but in Element, it's kind of not.…So, let's go ahead, and we'll apply Element to this Element layer,…and you can see that I've applied a background here that's currently hidden.…Go ahead and click Scene Setup, and go to the Starter_Pack in the Model Browser…area, and scroll down a little bit, and add each of these rocks: rock_01, click on…rock_02, and click on rock_03.…
Now, we want to make sure that these rocks are not on the same group, because we…want to adjust them independently.…So, I want rock_01 on Group 1, and that's great.…I want rock_02 on Group 2, so we need to enable it for Group 2, and disable it for Group 1.…We want rock_03 on Group 3, so we enable it on Group 3, and disable it from Group 1.…So now, rock_01 is on Group 1, rock_02 is on Group 2, and rock_03 is on Group 3.…
Once that's all set up, go ahead and click OK.…
