Magnet

With the magnet, you can pull sections out of polygon objects or splines. Click anywhere on the object(s) and drag the mouse. The further the points are from the mouse pointer, the weaker the magnet’s pull on them. If you hold down Shift while you drag, the points will be moved parallel to the normal of the highlighted point.

Tip:
The brush size and strength for ALL brush tools can be adjusted in Cinema 4D/BodyPaint 3D interactively as follows:

  • MMB + drag left/right to adjust brush size
  • MMB + drag up/down to adjust brush strength
