deleting point
« on: January 18, 2008, 03:02:57 pm »

Hi,

Is there a way to delete point without edge loss?
I mean when its not the edge endpoint. ;)

I guess you mean something like merging two edges into one... There's no such tool in Anim8or, but you can go around it.
you can move the point you want to remove close to one of the edge endpoints and then use Edit>Merge Points command (first select the points that should be merged)... or you can just delete the point and then add new edge (that's not probably what you want to do...)

Actualy I'm using 'delete' button - some edges and faces gets deleted aswell. So I add missing edges and fill the holes ;)
Just thought there was other way ;)

Thanks anyway.

Not sure if this will help you - you can use the cut tool to cut a new point close to the the one you want to delete - do it on two or more edges if needed, delete the point you don't want and then move and join the new points - that way you don't loose a face

CORRECTION That way you don't loose the whole edge - to keep the whole face, cut across a corner, do your repair, make a new face and merge. :-[
