How to Model a Head in Cinema Help Please
on Sep 26, 2009 at 10:44:02 am

I'm using this tutorial http://library.creativecow.net/articles/labelle_jannis/head_ee/Eyes.htm
there is a Problem with it.
1.) the Guy using this tutorial uses R7 and I'm using R11 which is so diffrent that this tutorial is not useful at all
I have been able to find out everything up to that Part where i need to add the Points i have it in the right mode make a right click and choose add points but now when i click there are no points>>>> Why?

2.) also he mentions that the Extrude Edge plugin supposed to be included in R8 thats why i assume that it would be included in every cinema newer than R8 BUT WHERE DO I FIND IT (its not explaind in which menu its supposed to be)

Please answer me fast and in order to give me useful answers rathere explain to much as not enough i really need it explained in baby steps very precisly.

1) Hold down the control key when you click;

2) Use the extrude command (works with polys and edges).

[Romeo Meier] "Ho do I do that with "Extrude Command" how do i find it?"

Structure>Extrude, or

Right-click menu>Extrude, or

shortcut key "T" (hit M key to see all modeling shortcuts).

Also explained in the html help system (Help>Help).

I'm not sure what you mean by "creating round edges". Can you provide a link to the tutorial step you're stuck on?

Looks like you skipped the part where he puts the geometry in a Hypernurbs object. Check the second image on that page.

no i did the hyper nurbs but the eyes had corners on each point i did and on the picture it didn't have corners at all that is why i originally asked where i can find the edge extrude plugin since it is supposed to be integrated in R8 which makes me believe that it also will be integrated in R11 I believe that extrude and edge Extrude is not the same.
How would you model a head so that it has no unnecessary corners and would look like a real head?

Extrude and edge extrude are the same thing. As I said, it's explained in detail in the html help file.

I can't explain in a post how to model a head, I'm afraid.
