Here's a new video I uploaded. An introduction to selections and soft selections in 3D Studio Max
In the video I talk about using the selection tools in Max, how to add and subtract from selections, and finally, soft selections where the selected elements can fall off in strength.
- q key puts you in selection mode
- ctrl-click on an element in selection mode will add it to your existing selection
- alt-click on an element in selection mode will subtract it from your existing selection
- turning on the 'soft selection' check-box will enable soft selection
