View Full Version : Poly selection Edge Loops

09 September 2004, 04:58 PM
Is there a better way to select polys for edge loops?

Currently I am trying to use the rectangle mask tools but they are hard to select details with. I've tried the alpha method with the smallest brush and inverted selection but the resulst are always mixed. I end up exporting to Lightwave and making changes and importing again to ZBrush. There is also the group selection but that also needs selection. I would prefer to keep my model in ZBrush for the whole process.

Is there a way to select polys more precisely???

Have you tried using the ctrl-shift drag method?

Hold the ctrl-shift keys while dragging over the polys....a green rectangle will appear if you let go of the mouse button first the area selected will be select more ctrl-shift drag outside the model to see the hidden and repeat......or

ctrl-shift drag to select but let go of the shift key first to see a red rectangle ...this will hide those parts so you can continue to select polys til you have what you want then ctrl-shift drag to view the hidden....finish removing the last bits by doing the same til ya have what ya want.
