View Full Version : selection tool help needed

01 January 2010, 01:52 AM
i cannot select through my geometry when selecting vertices and select the back vertices as well. i've looked around maya as well as maya help and just can't figure this out. i am using maya 2009.

thanks for any help and happy new year!

Have you had a look within the tools setting - Was working through a tutorial a while ago and one of the techniques it used was to only select verticies that the camera was directed at. Maybe you've got that turned on!

i went to the selection tool settings and camera based selection was already turned off, so it has to be something else. turning it on pretty much does the same thing it was doing.

well, you've got me there!
I've been having troubles with my own selection tools, won't select the verticles when your cursor is hovering over it. But if you move the cursor to the side or something, the verticles Lights up and is selectable =S
A glich maybe?

that is odd... i don't think it is a glitch because a teacher showed me a way to select only what was visible, and now i don't remember how to put it back the way it was.

unhappy bmiles.
