I'm trying to create a simple mountain with proportional editing, and I'm finding that it's creating unusual faces around the edges of the surface. What I was hoping to do was to create a bell curve-like surface that is smooth around the entire surface. However, what's actually happening, is it's becoming almost like an umbrella:

What rule does this follow, and is there a setting that can be changed to create more faces (almost like a subdivision, except on the proportional editing)?

I did use the Connected proportional editing mode, mainly because if I use Projected it comes up with a different kind of shape based on the projection of the camera (which seems fitting).

Your proportional editing is set to connected.

You can change it to Projected (2D) to get your desired result.

  • $\begingroup$ See edit. The reason I didn't use projected is because it creates an odd shape that makes a non-symmetrical mountain depending on the view projection. I need a fully symmetrical shape across each axis, with the same weight on each side. $\endgroup$ – Daneolog May 12 '18 at 1:11

    $\begingroup$ You should just enable basic Proportional Editing by clicking on Enable. $\endgroup$ – Scott Milner May 12 '18 at 1:12
  • $\begingroup$ You can change the falloff, but creating more faces is not possible. What you can do as a workaround is just edit it a few times and decrease the radius and how high you drag it. That would decrease the deform of faces on the bottom. $\endgroup$ – S.Visser May 12 '18 at 1:18
