Group selected edge loops individually

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Is there any way to create a different group for each edge loop I have selected so I can later make a name tag out of each loop and run a for each loop operation per loop?
In this case I am creating my loops via a SOP groupfindpath, but that is not that important here, any way to create one group per loop would be super helpful. 


Thanks!

If you generate tubes or capsules with the sweep SOP you can activate primrow and primcol attributes which enables accessing individual poylgon loops.

hmm yeah, I found a example online of someone doing it via the sweep SOP, but in my case I would like to apply the selection to already existing.

Basically what I am trying to achieve is a quick way to optimize low poly meshes for game by automatically selection every other edge of a loop and collapsing those, but because of they way I am doing that selection I sometimes get the X patterns you can see on the example on the right.
If I could run the "select every other" portion of my tool onto each loop individually I could make sure the selection happens always on the same edges avoiding the X pattern.
