Axis Problem

Recommended Posts

Day one using Cinema 4d so I'd like to say hello to everyone.

 

I'm following a pipe tutorial online and when in poly mode they can access the axis and move it freely without moving anything else but I don't seem to be able to do this,

Don't know why? Any help appreciated and thank you.

Hi and :welcome:to the Cafe

 

Press "L" on keyboard, that will enter axis modification mode. Press "L" to go back to regular mode :)

    If the lower of your 2 highlighted buttons is active, then you should have free movement of the modelling axis. 'L' should turn that on and off. Is that not the case for you ?

  • L does not work for some reason(it works on my keyboard) and how do I get both of those buttons selected at the same time?

    In your screenshot they ARE both selected, so I don't understand why that isn't working, unless this is some dodgy crack copy where that functionality is broken. Could that be the case ?

    Ok, well you could always use the modelling axis sliders in the Move, Scale or Rotate tools instead...

    Look in the Attributes Manager for the Modelling Axis Tab, and make sure axis mode is set to 'selected' and all the sliders should be at 0 to get the axis in the center.
