 00:00:00,110 --> 00:00:04,650
 In uMake, you can edit curves by moving the
 control points of a curve.
 2
 00:00:04,650 --> 00:00:07,980
 Tap once on a single curve to enter into edit
 mode.
 3
 00:00:07,980 --> 00:00:10,410
 You will see control points appear.
 4
 00:00:10,410 --> 00:00:17,840
 To edit more than one curve, select multiple
 curves and select 'Edit' from the side menu.
 5
 00:00:17,840 --> 00:00:21,730
 The selected curves will go into edit mode.
 6
 00:00:21,730 --> 00:00:25,630
 Once you see the control points you can change
 the shape of the curve by moving the points
 7
 00:00:25,630 --> 00:00:27,870
 like this.
 8
 00:00:27,870 --> 00:00:30,070
 Tap on a point to select it.
 9
 00:00:30,070 --> 00:00:35,840
 You can then drag the point or use the arrows
 to move the point along specific axes.
 10
 00:00:35,840 --> 00:00:39,500
 As you move points the curve will change.
 11
 00:00:39,500 --> 00:00:43,300
 You can select multiple points at once by
 tapping on them.
 12
 00:00:43,300 --> 00:00:48,500
 Or you can use the lasso tool and draw a selection
 around the points you wish to move.
 13
 00:00:48,500 --> 00:00:55,470
 To deselect points, simply tap on selected
 points again.
 14
 00:00:55,470 --> 00:01:00,090
 You can also use the lasso tool and draw a
 small selection on empty space to deselect
 15
 00:01:00,090 --> 00:01:02,900
 multiple points at once.
 16
 00:01:02,900 --> 00:01:09,540
 As you select, move, and deselect control points,
 you will see how your curves will change.
 17
 00:01:09,540 --> 00:01:14,270
 When you are done editing, tap the green check
 mark to exit edit mode.
 18
 00:01:14,270 --> 00:01:18,600
 Take some time to try editing curves to get
 a feel for how you can change a curves shape
 19
 00:01:18,600 --> 00:01:19,180
 with ease.
