Using the Merge Vertex tool

In this video, I'm going to show you how to use the merge vertex tool and some other tools, to correct quite a serious problem that we have here in this particular model. So in to Chapter 2, if you open up file 10, merge vertex, the second layer down is called body merge vertex. So, let's take a look at this. First of all, we have to combine both these components if we're going to use merge vertex. So select both, mesh, combine. Next I'm going to go to edit mesh, merge vertex tool, open up the options, reset the tool, and let's get started with merge.

I pick one vertex point, drag it over to the target and it merges as we expect and as we've seen before in previous videos, this may not be the result that we're looking for. So let's go back to merge vertex, open up the options. Let's pick center. Again, select the vertex, go to the target, and it merges at the midpoint. Again, this may not be the result we're looking for, but those are the 2 options within the merg...
