Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Making groups similar, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tutorial, we are going to look at how to make groups similar. And why do…you even want to do that, in the first place?…As part of our subject, we are going to be looking at this little, tiny Lynda bumper. …(video playing)…So, part of this, is that we have the Lynda slogan, "You can learn it." And what's…kind of fun about this, is that these two shapes are very similar.…As we talked about before, when we have similar materials on the same object,…or when we have the same object with different Replicator Shapes, they kind of…morph into each other nicely.…
And, so, then, it's a good idea to learn how to copy from one group to the next.…In our case, here, we have the same Replicator Shape, and we, pretty, pretty much the same…Replicator settings. We have different object, and so we're getting that cross- …scaling that we talked about before.…But, it's still a really cool effect, and it comes in so handy to be able to…copy groups. So let's look at how to do this.…Let's go to Copy/Paste Groups START. Go to Element, where we have a big mess here. …
