Interface

Rendering and Interpolation rollouts

All spline-based shapes share these parameters. See Splines for explanations of these parameters.

Creation Method rollout

The Donut shape uses the standard creation methods of Center or Edge. Most spline-based shapes share the same Creation Method parameters. See Splines for an explanation of these parameters.

Parameters rollout

Once you have created a donut, you can make changes using the following parameters:

Radius 1

Sets the radius of the first circle.

Radius 2

Sets the radius of the second circle.
