Video Transcript

All right, guys, In today's video flexi starter, we're gonna be looking at how to snap objects to the centre of gravity. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. Yeah, yeah. So today's video can be found on We make sure and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we have daily updates otherwise, back in the programme. Yeah, now just a reminder or for those that are new. This is a miniseries on snapping objects. I've already covered quite a few different ways to go about it. And today we're gonna be looking at snapping objects to think of gravity. So it's you're not quite the centre of gravity as it is more the centre of items. You can say your objects or in my personal take on it, uh, general centre of items. But any case, so yeah, Let's, uh, jump right into it also. So what we've got here, let's say we've got, uh, this shape is shape in this shape, and we want to snap things instead of, like, privacy to edges or stuff. We want to snap it to kind of more or less the mass of it, so they will mean, if this shape is in a unique, would you rather if it has a unique shape, we'll try to find more or less centre of that origin, but not so much the centre as it is where the gravity would be. So it would seem that normally it's a bit lower. That's a rather show us a strange snapping method. I'm not too sure exactly how it works trying to puzzle it out, But, uh, yeah, it's almost like snapping to the centre, but it's not quite the centre and my people. So otherwise, that's your head into it. So now to locate your snapping, we can actually go here to our main menu on top, go to view, and we want to navigate down toy finds. Snap under snap. You'll see. We've got quite a few options here and then, yeah, we've got the centre of gravity now, at the moment can see the little blue block there is active, so if we click on it again, it will take it away and also ever clicking on snap toolbar. And then we'll bring up to Bar, which I've got here on my talk, me and you just so As you can see, the snaps centre of gravity is selected. So now we've got our shape selected and we move this over another shape. You'll see it tries to snap it kind of two. That's why I say it's a bit of a tricky one that's not quite the centre of gravity, where I'm kind of yeah, snaps it to the mall to the bottom. But then some shapes again. Same thing. Rectangle. Just like smaller. Now it's more or less snapping to this thing's centre. That's why I say it's quite a two, which, uh, unfortunately, you use very often because that yeah, it's just it's hard to make sense of it. I would rather just combine a few different tools and then yeah, so that's basically snapping to gravity, like giving mind if we have unique shapes that will try to do the same thing, so you buy it quickly. Just use this pain tal school something that's a yeah, quite a normal shape. And now if we grab this thing, you'll see it's a start, I guess, kind of trying to find the centre, but like on this one now, this is kind of where it thinks it's this thing centre of gravity. So, uh, yeah, but on that note also, it's something to keep in mind, which and I will not be making another video for So I just thought, Well, cover it quick. And that is you can use multiple, um, snapping methods together, for instance, you can take something like, say, the snap edge, and then we can put the it's not the centre of gravity. So now if we select this thing, it will kind of try to snap it to the edge and also to the centre of gravity. So it will kind of try to use the centre of gravity. Um, which is interesting. So if you combine a few interesting ones, then, uh, you can kind of more predict the outcome of it. But like I mentioned in the previous one most of the times, you at least myself, in my personal opinion, um, the snap edge as a hand you want to use snap the point. But mostly it will be the snap to edge. And then, in my opinion, the snap to guides because you have quite a lot of control over the measurements on that or if you're working on kind of a uniform type, uh, spacing, you can use a snap to grid, but yeah, that concludes our little miniseries on snapping objects. Um, yeah. So, otherwise, if we had year to start training You guys honestly get a variety of different Softwares will recover, and also, you're able to isolate your search on the top, right? If you do not ever find what you're looking for, you can always go here to request a training video. Then we will make that for you Otherwise, thanks, guys, for joining me on this little journey and cheers.
