Basic Head Modeling (video 1)
hi i'm new to modeling (notisable oh....) and I came across
the basic head modeling video tutorial in the free training
section here:

so i downloaded it and went step by step and I have some problems, during the video the creator doesnt state the tools
he used and I culdnt keep up so if someone can download the video and tell me what tools he used in video number 1:
at 02:40 of the video (set value or somthing).
at 02:49 of the video (extrude...)
at 02:51 of the video (filled in the extruded part)
at 02:57 of the video (removed all the inner polys leaving only the outline)
at 02:59 of the video (smoothed all the polys)

thats about it (that was when I realized that I cant go further
withot those parts and stopped watching the video)

thanks in advance :)

Set value is hotkey v under the detail tab.

Extrude is hotkey shift e under the multiply tab. The Extrude automatically fills in the polys your extruding.

Select the polys you want to delete and hit delete.

To smooth the polys go into Subpatch mode by hitting Tab.

Keep the questions coming and have fun doing the tutorial.

First of all thank you very much for helping it made me understand alot better but about the "extrude" tool
(The Extrude automatically fills in the polys your extruding.)
if you've seen the video he extrude only the outline but then
he does somthing that fills the rest in.

sorry for the truble and thanks again :)

When he extrudes the polys are there just backwards you are actually seeing through the backside of the polys he just hit f to flip the polys normal direction.

Keep the questions coming the best way to learn is to work on the tutorials and ask lots of questions.
