Object tool (enhanced)

Enhancements to selecting and manipulating objects make modelling, animating and other tasks more efficient and creative.

Highlights include:

  • Artists can now use Working Pivot without having to go to the hierarchy panel by "Pinning Working Pivot".
  • Local align, a new axis align method, tries to line up each axis for a more predictable result when applying different transforms to a sub-object selection. It can be found in the Reference Co-ordinate System dropdown on the main toolbar.
  • A single hotkey opens a mode to select which sub-object you want.
  • The added ability to do point-to-point selections by holding the Shift key. If nonadjacent elements are selected, point-to-point selection with a preview enables you to see exactly what will be selected.
