Oh, I see! I thought Multi Bridge used your selection, but it seemingly just loop grows the edge you hovered? That works, thanks
I don't know if you've seen this, but if possible I'd like to get something similar in VW: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99132
I know there are no modifiers in VW, but is there any possibility for non-destructive modeling tools? You would use edge weights to define the Chamfer thickness.
I like working with edge creasing, but would prefer chamfers over sub-d smoothing. This leaves me with a cleaner (less dense/cpu-intensive) mesh, with the same visual result! This makes exporting and baking a lot more pleasant.
This Quad Chamfer modifier has the advantage that you're softening edges, without adding a lot of loops on the rest of a mesh. It certainly has other advantages too, but that's the part of it that I'm most interested in.
Also, is there currently a way to set the chamfer segments without going into the options? Perhaps using the scrollwheel?
To clarify how that would work (and it would work well for me since I don't use the scrollwheel to zoom):
-drag mouse to determine chamfer width
-scroll up to increase segments
It would also be nice if Rounded Bevels were displayed as such while using the tool, but perhaps this is not possible?
Lastly, perhaps always open a tool's options in the side-panel while using it and allow the user to adjust its settings afterwards (before you do anything else)? This would allow me to do the bevel as described above (using streamline tools) and decided immediately afterwards that I'd like the bevel to be flat rather than rounded.
I'm not asking for a complete history as in Maya, but just on the last tool.
Ofcourse, I realise this might not be possible in VW, so just let me know.
edit: I'm trying to set my tools up so they activate the tool with options 'on tapped', so I can tap once to activate the tool with options, and just hold-and-drag to quickly perform it. So far though, I'm having no luck. I'm trying it with Chamfer in Edge mode, any idea why this isn't working? I'll download the latest version at work as well, to check if it's not just a bug.
I realise I'm asking for a lot already, buuut:
Could delete be added to the Streamline Tools? This way I could have delete on tapped, but when held down I could Merge verts/Collapse edges&faces or whatever else is thematically related.
