so far we've been doing subdivisions with just four points which make a blob but if you're going to make something as cool as a Pixar character you're going to need a lot more points for example suppose that I want to model the outline of a hand or maybe the profile of a character fortunately Subdivision doesn't care how many points you start out with in this interactive you can move points as before but you can also add as many new points as you'd like just click on the interior of an edge to create a new point and then use the mouse to drag the new point wherever you want it I can make a crude looking hand shape like this use this slider to control how many subdivisions are used to give a smoother result using this interactive make a hand or whatever you'd like maybe a dinosaur or the outline of Mike Wazowski or whatever interest you be creative
