I am in c4d lite. After making an object and selecting polygon mode, I am tryingt o right click in the work area to access my tools (ie dissolve, brush, mirror, iron, knife etc.) The contextual menu that apprears is very bare. It has four items (undo, frame selected element, aling and reverse normal, and optimize.) In the tutorial I am watching, there are many items that should apprear in that menu. Could it be that some supporting files were not installed properly.
These features only exist in the full version of Cinema 4d, not Lite.
What a shame. But arn't these tools of key importance in modeling? Obviously this version is free and "lite" so I don't expect it to have all the bells, but this seems like a fundamental function to any workflow in c4d. Darn. Thanks for the help
