I’m not exactly new to Blender or these forums, but I’ve yet to actually get really into it. I’ve been doing 3D for a while though, using the LightWave 7 demo. I really liked the program, but, I didn’t like the price tag, and when I switched to Mac I got used to the whole experience, which was very much different from what Newtek had implemented. Anyway, one thing I miss about Lightwave that I can’t quite seem to get over is the fact that I had the ability to select points and faces. What I mean is, I could select the face itself, rather than the four (or whatever number) points defining the face. This is similar to, for example Wings 3D, which has the added bonus of being able to select edges in a similar fashion.
So basically what I’d like to know is whether this presents a problem for anybody else. I’m guessing whatever problem it did pose is one which can be overcome, as evidenced by some of the amazing work that I’ve seen made entirely in Blender. Has anybody else had an experience like mine who can offer some advice? I’d really like to get into the spirit of Blender, but this has really held me back.
