# How to inset a face?

I am trying to set up a Minecraft rig mouth that will have more controls and will be rounded, but I am having issues trying to figure out what this guy did here. First, he did what looked like a loop cut and slide, but instead of drawing a line it selected all the edges it passed through. He then cut to a new clip where the mouth was already set up like this.

The video is in 3 times speed but if you download a youtube plugin you can slow it down to 0.25 speed of the video and then if you do the spacebar trick you can slow it down so it shows 1 frame at a time and it is really slow. Here is the link if you want or need to see the video.

All I am asking is how can I create those 8 basic segments.

• You do know that the linked video is not of blender, right? – gandalf3 Nov 12 '13 at 20:25
• Yeah and neither is picture but it is same concept. I have used some of this video to make other features. You can do most of the stuff in Maya in Blender, Cinema 4D, and 3DS Max. gandalf3 all I am asking is how can I draw those 6 basic segments. – Pixels_ Nov 12 '13 at 20:43
• Which segments? Just be aware that other softwares will have different tools and different workflows. – gandalf3 Nov 12 '13 at 20:46
• First I did my math wrong it is 8 segments my bad. LOL :) But the 4 diagonals and the rectangle in the middle. – Pixels_ Nov 12 '13 at 20:47
