Is there a way, or perhaps the better question is convenient way to model using empties?
Here’s the problem: I am getting a number of survey points from a tracking program (let’s say Syntheyes). I would like to be able to use those points to create an environment to animate and render off of (catch shadows, physics, etc.).
The only way I can figure out how to do it is to jump in and out of edit mode, selecting points, hitting Ctrl-s and snapping the cursor to selected, then jumping back in to edit mode, hitting ctrl-s and snapping selected vert to cursor.
In other programs I’m used to being able to snap to objects not part of the original object while editing it. Is this (or something similar) possible in Blender?
Thanks in advance.
