I’ve been going through the tutorials on www.blender3d.com in order (for the most part), and I’m now on the ‘Fun with nurbs tutorial’. The tutorial can be found here: http://download.blender.org/documentation/oldsite/oldsite.blender3d.org/117_Blender%20tutorial%20Fun%20with%20nurbs.html#http://members.nbci.com/_XMCM/blender/tutorials/Cave/Cave.html
I run into trouble starting with the ‘Working towards the nose’ section. I can either not get it to subdivide, or it does and I get more CV’s than the picture shown. I’m also not quite sure why the tutorial’s ‘Adding an extra curve’ pic has changed into the shape it has (certainly not from just adding the extra curve).
The next problem I have is the actual shaping of the thing. The tutorial just says to select CV’s and move them. Well, this gets pretty frustrating when you can’t make them into anything. It seems to me like this is the most important part of the tutorial, but it’s jumped over with a few sentences.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time, people.
