although I have already made up my mindpurchasing SILO there are a few minor problems I have not yet found a solution to (still using the Learning Edition). I would be grateful if any of you could tell me whether there is a workaround for those:
Whenever I use the Append Polygon Tool on an already drawn poly one point always jumps to a position somewhere else. It is quite tiresome to move this point to the proper position being required. This happens regardless of the order of points or the chosen view.
Whenever I extrude edges from a primitive they look fine. As soon as I subdivide them via [C] they look totally distorted. THis does not happen when I extrude edges from a poly.
To a certain extent this phenomenon happens in C4D as well although not in such an extreme manner. IN XSI 5.0 they just look OK after subdividing them.
a) I usually love to keep my selections when undoing actions: Is there a way of configuring SILO so that it always recognizes selections as actions meaning that I can get back to past selections without an extra key?
b) Talking about keeping selections: Imagine I would like to model the thorns on a bush or on the back of a reptile. OK, I select the proper points, bevel them in order to extrude afterwards. Now guess what? All the selections are gone. So before extruding them I would have to select all the different faces beforehand. Quite a hassle.
Still I love the flexibilty of SILO concerning configuring mouse and keys. Selecting edgeloops by means of a double click is awesome.
Sorry for asking so many questions. I hope that some of the SILO aficionados might be able to give me some advice.
Thanks in advance
