Hi All,

I've beat my head against this long enough and can't make it work. I want to create a simple cartoon ear by gently dragging in selected points of a flattened disk using Magnet with Radial falloff. If I use Magent in Top view, the points are uniformly pulled back, but are twisted slightly in the Right view, as shown below. If I drag them in the Right view, the points are twisted in the Top view. So they are never uniformly pulled back around the center. I'm selecting the center point as the dragging point. How do I drag them back uniformly using Radial falloff?

Thanx,

TW

I just messed around with the magnet tool and I couldn't reproduce the problems that you're having. Have you tried constraining the tool to just one axis? You can do this by using the middle mouse button instead of the left.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, hope you figure it ouy.
