Join Ellery Connell for an in-depth discussion in this video Action centers, part of Learning MODO 601.
In this video, we'll have a look at Action Centers. …Now, Action Centers are Modo's method of changing the way that tools work, or the …centering and the positioning in the orientation of your tools in 3D space. …So by default, the Action Center is set to automatic. …Which if I go up here and set the automatic Action Center and engage a tool …like the Move tool. So, I'll press the W key and turn on the …Move tool. And see that by default, the handles for …the Move tool fall right into the center of my selected object. …I'm in Polygon mode, so all of the polygons in this scene.…
And in this case, it's just the single sphere. …It centers itself into the middle of those, and it orients itself with the …world orientation. So you see y is up, so I've got that …green up. x is out to the right on my front view, …so there's that x. And I've got the z here going forward if …I'm looking on the top view. So, another thing that the automatic …Action Center can do is reposition itself based on your mouse clicks. …
