Micheus, Optigon, coders around:
I really apreciate Edge|Crease command.
Wouldnt it be possible to create a variant (rmb) according with
the command keeps the resultants edge loop "opened"?
Today the command creates a quad at the endes of initial selected edge loop(s),
"closing" the resultant edge loop(s).
This is wonderful, really: it allows user to keep working with Edge Rings, without interrupt the loops flow.
A Crease variant, to just generate "paralel" edgeloops,
without connecting its ends to closest verts,
would be very useful to modelling workflow.
Unfortulatelly it is not possible to Slide two edge loops both to converge them to an intermediate one:
otherway Slide would be an workaround.
Therefore Crease would be a more confortable way to perform that local subdivision.
Thanks for your precious attention.
there is some similarity to the edge contour/inset idea
(at http://nendowingsmirai.yuku.com/topic/6088 ),
but not by improving Slide command:
would it be so hard or a non-reasonable thing to improve
Crease code to add the possibility to not close the resultant edge loops?
It would be very useful to generate new edge loops from a selected one (or ones).
This already occurs when using Edge|Crease, Edge|Bevel and Edge|Extrude
(remembering crease is the only one that doesnt create new vertices).
I hope there is a way to keep the resultant edge loops opened,
without connecting their ends to the closer vert at the same edge loop.
I am not suggesting properly a Crease option, or even an Extrude one
(to which it would be more complicate to inset one more option):
maybe it would be better a new command to do that job, for a better conceptual consistence
and since the tag here is to generate new edge loops direct from an edge loop selection.
