Stager

Never Lose Your Unique Working Position!

ImageAlt
Stager allows you to switch between two working positions

With the new Stager feature, you can store a SubTool’s Home position, scale and orientation in world space. A second Target stage is stored for the posed SubTool, at any position, scale and rotation. You can then switch between the two stored stages, working on whichever suits your working method.

A primary benefit of Stager is that the Home stage will enable you to continue to work symmetrically on the SubTool while periodically checking the Target to see the result.
Stager will work with multiple subdivision levels, Dynamic Subdivision, DynaMesh, Sculptris Pro and IMM brushes!

Important!

Note: the Tool>>SubTool sub-palette has new buttons All To Home and All To Target for use with Stager and all SubTools.

Stager is in the Tool>>Geometry sub-palette

Home

The Home button sets the primary stage for the SubTool. The feature works best when this is centered in world space, so that symmetry can be used.

Target

The Target button should be pressed when you have repositioned the SubTool in its posed position. The mesh can be rotated and scaled on any axis.
Note: the Home and Target can be reset by turning the buttons off and on again. Be sure that if you do this the topology for each stage is the same.

Switch

Press the Switch button any time you want to switch between the stored stages. The button is disabled until both states are stored.
