Poke face equivalent in C4d?

Recommended Posts


I've been looking and cannot find a similar tool in c4d to 'poke' a face or polygon like the poke tools in Blender and Maya. Is there a similar tool in c4d? The subdivide and triangulate commands sort of worked how I wanted. 

please see images for examples 


thanks for your time

In Cinema that's called (rather more appropriately IMO!) Collapse (U-C), although Weld (M-Q) does mostly the same thing in this instance.  So you'd just Inner Extrude (I) that big n-gon one more time to add another edge loop, then use Weld or Collapse commands (r-click menu) to reduce it to a single point.




The difference between the 2 tools is that Collapse ONLY collapses to a single central point, whereas Weld offers additional control in that you can choose the point it welds to.
