Long time animator (about 20 years), new Blender user (but I’ve been watching it for a while now). I love the mission behind Blender, and am excited to dive in and start learning it!
As I’m learning, I’m going through a few tutorials and had a question about efficiently selecting and re-selecting verts while manipulating a poly object. I’m a huge fan of hotkeys and efficient workflows, and just wanted to see if my current workflow was the most efficient, or if someone had some suggestions on what I could do to really speed things up.
Currently, I’ve found I’m doing a lot of this: a-b-click+drag-g manipulate - click. over and over again.
this translates to - deselect all, box-select, drag around my selection, enter move, drag the mouse to where I want, accept my interaction.
I know there’s a lot of heat and debate around selection and manipulation, and there’s currently work going on by some incredibly talented people to find the best way forward. I’m very much looking forward to the fruits of those labors, but I’m not here to join that debate at the moment - I’m more interested in finding out… is the way I’m currently doing this the most efficient in the current version of blender, or is there a more efficient way?
Thanks very much, and I’m super jazzed to be joining this community!
