General Anim8or Forum / filling problems
« on: July 27, 2008, 09:02:21 pm »
I make closed shapes and edge loops and when I go to the edit toolbar all the edit options are blank. So I go into build and fill it but lots of lines appear in the shape. This is stopping me from being able to use edge loops and create faces. and also when I join these faces, a transperent face appears joining the the gap. ???

hi just a quick question about edge looping.

Is there an actual button built into anim8tor like right clicking and clicking a menu. I have searched the internet with multiple keywords and serched the manual but still am a little bit confused as to what to do after you have drawn the lines on. ???
