R17 knife mode equivalent to :this:

Recommended Posts

In this tutorial, at this point (7:41), the presenter is using a tool, LINE CUT, that doesn't seem to be in R17:

(cued up):    The big thing is the tool seems to be able to commence a cut in the middle of a polygon.

Since I can't find it in R17, I am trying to use the KNIFE tool to achieve the same effect, but can't seem to find a combination of modes and switches that would allow me to start in the middle of a polygon.   In R17 is this possible, and what's the proper settings?

Thanks!

  • One thing I was wondering: is there a way to PROJECT a spline that would cut into the polygonal surface?  That would be just as good (or better), and would answer my long standing question of "is there a Lightwave-style "Drill" effect in C4D?".

    It should be in R17 what happens when you press K K very quickly?  You have to be in the right sub level. For example point or edge modes.

     

    I think MAXON might of renamed it to knife tool.

    It's not in R17. There are no tools in that which can start a cut in the center of a polygon.

    Is the line tool different to the knife tool out of interest?

    Yes and no. Line Cut is the re-written replacement for what was the Knife tool in Line mode in previous versions. All the knife tools were massively improved from R18 onwards.
