Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Isolating model components, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tutorial, we're going to look at hiding and isolating different…components of 3D models.…Sounds kind a boring, right?…Well, there is actually a lot of really cool stuff you can do with this.…So, I am going to go to Element.…I have already applied it for you. Click Scene Setup to go in here.…Let's go to the Starter_Pack in the Model Browser, and just to understand…this concept, let's go down to the paint_can, and click it once to apply it to our scene.…And we have here this paint can. We click and drag around. We can see it doing…its paint-canny thing.…
I have some blue paint here, and a lid,…but we might not want a lid, and we might not want that paint spill.…So, if we look over here, we can see, underneath the paint_can model, the…different materials that are applied to it.…And what's really cool is that Element has to apply different materials to…a model, it makes it a separate isolated component.…So if we want to take off the paint lid, for example, we click this little…button here, and this will, they call it mute, but we're basically disabling that object.…
