How to do this in Blender...

In this

video at about 11:28, they select the edges and then do a loop cut. How do you do this in Blender?
Sorry, Blender is my first foray into 3d modeling so I don’t know much.


No video in your post.

In blender you can do a loop cut by Ctrl+R

Doh! Sorry.

But how do you make that circular-ish loop cut with only the selected edges? When I hit Ctrl+R, it makes a cut around the entire mesh.

Select edges and W / subdivide. Look in the bottom of the toolshelf (T) or F6 for the subdivide options

Wow! That works. Thanks!!
