Hi, i am following my second tutorial for blender and i am stuck on a step that tells me to split verticies. I am supposed to have 2 verticies selected but when i click i have 15 verticies. Now i was using the knife tool so i may have created more verts somehow with that, or otherwise i have no idea somehow i just created more verticies then im supposed to have.
Also when i try to split them (for some reason one time the “v” key was acting like the “G” key and it just moved and didn’t come apart) when it splits it splits in the wrong direction, i think i said that right. I probably might need pics for this, but does anyone know if there’s any easy way to get rid of verticies?
i accidently made a post in Tips/ and Tricks above this forum so sorry if double post.
Also i don’t like how sneaky it can be with verticies being created, because i could go hours and not notice i’ve made too many.
I managed to get through deleting the faces by selecting in different ways. (for some reason as pictured i couldn’t get the full triangle selected, when i hit “G” on accident it seemed to show me there were 2 verticies on top of eachother, When i finally got the face deleted there was an extra edge that was left so i deleted that)
So now i am stuck trying to pull back this verticie on the face, instead of it moving, it’s still connected and i can’t seem to make the right selection, i tried ALT+selecting, and using “B”… Also i don’t see more than one verticie selected at this step like i did in the other steps.
Also I think somehow it was me using the Knife tool somehow created duplicates, I had this issue in the first tutorial i did as well. Do you have any tips for watching the vertices? or it could just be me being bad at following directions. I am reading the manual, and i have a couple of Max books as well.
…you will automatically merge duplicate vertices. Use it wisely, however, because sometimes that’s not what you want. Also after a heavy editing session I’ll often Remove Duplicates as part of making a mesh tidy. You’ll soon develop your own modeling style. As for the Knife tool, I’m using 2.70a and it doesn’t create duplicate vertices.
Awesome! i have not seen that yet. Ok that’s good to know about the knife tool. One thing that took like a week to find out was that i didn’t know extrude created extra verts even after right clicking, so i was making a bunch of them that way without knowing.
