Hi guys. Sorry if this is a noob question but ive gone through everything that was installed with 3dsmax but I cant figure it out.
How do you pan around the view plots and rotate your model?

why? because I asked?
Isn't that what this is for?

it doesnt get more elemental than that, and if you expect someone to hold your hand throughout the learning process starting from there, you need to start digging hard in your pockets for some cash
this isn't a help forum, its a discussion forum for professionals.
we don't discuss rotating models
and furthermore, you haven't gone through squat
meaning you lied
and why should we approve of that
thats why theres some need to be an ass about it

Don't sweat it. everyone is gonna get RTFM answer sometimes =)

just as hard as reading up on how to rotate the viewport :P
and i don't expect everyone to know everything
i expect people to recognize that other peoples time is valuable, and that its generally a good idea to google/rtfm before asking dumb questions
see i could have told you how too do it, but i genuinly feel that you would benefit more from getting used to a better way of learning stuff

I figured by myself, though I already had expierence in other 3d editors, like UnrealEd and Valve Hammer Editor.

people that are very new may have a hard time learning simple things although I thought there was a tutorial for that sort of thing when you first start 3dsmax

Polygru think you spend to much time wanking over your knowledge of 3D mate, you get offended that someone asked a question? You got annoyed cause it was wasting your time? But you opened the link read it, managed to think of about 5 shitty different excuses for moaning about how it is wasting your time. the things titled 'Noob question' heres an idea... dont fukin open it! Get a grip you fool n try spending less time by yourself with your electronic best friend and go out and talk to people you might find that sometimes people ask questions that may seem stupid to you but then again not everyone fucks 3D models.
Oh and why I'm at it your a prick for making me read all this and waste my time in replying................ next time you reply like an ass google 'How to be a prick' first think you may tick a few boxes.

and call my going over the top here but people like you just piss me off, you say he's wasting your time he shouldn't ask stupid questions that can be googled..... okay well funny how simply from clicking on your name your older posts came up and one of them starts with

'I'm new to XSI so this may be a simple question... '

SHIT THE BED!!! try goggling it you prick instead of wasting peoples times, cant you see people on here haven't got time for stupid questions like that, it aint a help forum for fuks sake surely you should know that!! Saying that the majority of your posts are ASKING FOR HELP!
And did anyone reply to your simply noob question???? NO!!! probably cause no one wanted to waste their time but did anyone piss and moan like a dick for no reason NO! funny that.....

I understand what PolyGru says but I think that he was kinda rude. He could have said exactly the same things that he said to the new guy but in a nicer way.

I think that that is a crude attitude to somebody that is new. You never know if that person that is new is really a potentially talented artist whose work you could be admiring in the future.

If it was his opinion that Pyata should ask for help in other forums he could have said it more politely.

unfortunately, I see both sides to this. I remember how it was when I first started out asking for help to learn new interfaces. luckily, my boss showed me a few tricks and said have at it, i'll be back in 4 hrs

I learned much and he taught me something new each day.

As of late, I get asked to help teach Students, even some grad students. It can be over bearing and if there is nothing in return, you can get flustered. but Polygru should never of posted if he didn't want to help.

That was a bit harsh. Using your expertise to help is one thing but just trashing new users is just kind of warped. Everyone has to start somewhere and I am self taught in a bunch of programs and learn new things everyday. For those who don't have the luxury of a education in 3D design finding info is sometimes hard and frustrating, even for simple stuff, but to thrash a guy that just needed a simple answer is uncool.

Yes, it could look strange when someone can't find something that seems obvious and easy. But there was time that for us nothing was so obvious too. i remember when I've been loosing much time on searching and if I'm able to shorten this time for someone I'm glad to do it.
You can trash someone or tell the same thing in more constructive way without making someone to feel like shit and giving up with art because of this.
