Notes

ConnectVertices creates new edges and faces by connecting selected vertices. It is common to select an edge, apply SelectEdgeRings, apply SubdivideEdges, then apply ConnectVertices. This idea of connecting edges to create new edge loops is the foundation of the edge based subdivision modeling technique.

ConnectVertices works correctly with various configurations of selected and unselected vertices, ignoring use-cases where the output would be ambiguous. Newly-created edges will be selected in the output.
