can't see new points and edges over top of image
« on: June 10, 2014, 02:54:42 am »

hi ;)

Experimenting here, so I loaded a ref image and it came in fine. I then went to ( following online tutorial: youtube) add 'lines' to it holding down shift for first point, and then proceeded to add more, but the 'lines' do not show up over the image, as the tutorial shows to be doing. Is this a windows 8.1 issue ( video ?) or am I just not using the right kind of image somehow ? It's just a jpg I found..a vase.

thx anyone ;)

Reference image and "lines" are probably on the same plane:
z = 0.0
Double click on reference image and change location z coordinate to -50.0
Hope it helps.

A reference image is a 3D object. This allows you to position it in between objects to hide part that you don't want to see. At least that was the idea :-)
