How can I make vertices on a cylinder create a circle (like in this tutorial https://youtu.be/cHbOCSkqmo8?t=2m43s) ?

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Honestly, I won't do that. I'd rather ask somewhere else. 1. The video describes perfectly well what I want to do. No word could describe it better. 2. This is definitely NOT off-topic. 3. If someone does not understand, well, I suggest to not answer at all. 4. Downvoting this is just so lame. Get a life... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You were actually right about that it wasn't offtopic. As it was then it should've been closed as "unclear what are you asking". If the question is not clear the questioner is advised/asked to add clarification and that's totally fine. The question most likely was downvoted because of one reasons for that "the question doesn't show any research, is unclear". So read the rules of the site. Words can describe what you want; if you can't add 2 images - before and after. Now your quesiton is clearer. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @marcus I like the first idea of your friendly comment. $\endgroup$ May 23 '17 at 15:49
  • $\begingroup$ @marcus asking a question with just a link to a video is "just so lame." Really you cant be bothered to write your question in a way so that it is answerable without going somewhere else? You don't have to get all in a huff over the DVs. This site do not allow link only questions or answers. The post must be self standing. Just reading your question it was unclear. Thus why it got closed (and DVed). $\endgroup$

You may use To Sphere operation (as @Dontwalk pointed), but Loop Tool's Circle creates much better result. enter image description here

Activate the Loop Tools add on in User Preferences (Ctrl+Alt+U). Apply the transformations to the object (Ctrl+A-->Rot&Scale). Select the edges on a cylinder you want to transform to a circle and snap the cursor to it (Shift+S). Press W-->LoopTools-->Circle. Finally uncheck the Flatten checkbox in a Circle panel of a Tool Shelf (T). enter image description here

You may then extrude the circle inwards as was shown in the tutorial. enter image description here
