Spline drawings offset - not at 0

Recommended Posts

Hi guys any help for a total learner would be appreciated, and apologies if this thread  already exists, I couldn't find it.

 

In my starting out with learning and testing splines, I have found that whether drawing in top, right, or any view my splines are always at a distance in appearance from the 0 coordinates. I have included two examples of each.

 

Anybody know why this would be?

 

Sorry not to give more information at this point, I don't want to overwhelm. If anything is needed to help me out, gimme a shout.

 

Thanks!

Well, with the Interface preference 'Create New Object at View Center' unchecked doesn't seem to have an effect in this case, so I believe this is just the default behavior of freehand splines in C4D. You can either move the axis point manually (L)..spline and vertex snaps are useful here.. or you can use the Axis Center tool (Mesh menu).
