In this movie, we are going to look at a slightly more advanced way to create a lofted form.…So I want to create a freeform large, massive wall that will occupy the Graffiti…Gallery of my museum.…Using techniques from the last several movies, I can incorporate them all together…into a process here that gives me of very fluid and easy-to-modify loft form.…So we are going to start off by looking at what I've got here onscreen, which…is a file called Adaptive Loft, and it contains, among other things, a few…reference planes here just to kind of help me keep my bearings, a reference back…to this insertion point which is where it fits in the main museum, and we are…actually looking around the back side of the museum, so this would be in the Graffiti Gallery.…
So we have two reference points here, and these reference points I am using…primarily as work planes.…If you look at them, you'll notice the work planes are displaying.…So if I select one of these, you will see that over here on the Properties…
