alright, I am currently watching a very good tutorial on how to model a 3d car. The car he is modeling is a Porsche GT3 RS 911 (type 977) . Now he is pretty good with telling how to do everything, like which buttons to press to get which effect. Except right off the start he does something and I am only able to get mine to do half of what his does.
Now this would be easier if I could link the video but your forum rules state I cant so I will do my best to explain what he does. He says that you are to take the cube and take it into edit mode to align it with a few key points on the background image, ie. headlight, roof, and mirrors.
now here is where I get lost. He grabs his cube presses tab to put it into edit mode ( the cube turns like a see through pink ) but then he does something else and the cube is now see through blue or purple ( color deficient cant tell which it is ) and he is now able to use box select to grab it to begin his references…
How do I get my cube to turn blue (or purple) because I cant find this anywhere and have been looking for two days.
thanks for reading guys!
