In this video, we're going to look at some tools we can use to edit and tweak geometry with inside Houdini. We will enable Use Mirror, to get symmetrical editing, go into tweak mode to edit geometry without the use of a transform handle, using Soft Edit Radius to get a nice falloff and switching to the Peak Handle to get the (surface) normal direction when editing. We also learn the hotkey for toggling Subdivision display!
