…The EditGeo node allows you to edit vertices and faces of your 3D geometry.…Not suitable for modeling a T Rex of course, but it can come…in handy when you need to tweak the shape of a 3D object.…We'll start by selecting the sphere, and adding…an EditGeo node from 3D > Modify > EditGeo.…So we'll start with a simple translation demonstration.…I'm going to switch the viewer to ortho X, a side view.…Zoom in a little bit.…I'll set the viewer selection controls to vertex.…
Now if I select all of these vertices here, I did not disable the occlusion.…So if I switch back to a perspective view I only got one-quarter of the sphere.…Let's try that again, back to the side view, deselect.…Now I'll disable occlusion testing.…So that I can get both sides in one bite.…All right, back to perspective.…And now I have the entire half of the sphere selected.…Okay, back to an ortho view.…The EditGeo node adds these axes here.…So I can grab the z axis, for example, and pull it out like this.…And now, when I switch to Node selection, the normal view,…
