Hello guys,
i´m openning this post to collect here answers for all my questions during my ICE studies. Any tip would be highly appreciated =)

1.
Is it possible to deform a geometry object based on a particle strand ?
Say i have a dynamic strand and i need to 'envelope' a plane geometry (e.g one feather) to that.

thanks in advance

Thank you very much !

I did a simple ‘parent constraint’ operation using ICE, eg. Null_1 drives Null_2.
Transforming Null_1 results Null_2 behaving like its child.

But would be lovely if i could force that as new Translation/Rotation/Scale UI handles rather than changing slider parameters…

The point is:
a Matrix 4x4 as new custom transforms and exposed into UI handles’, letting animators W-translation E-rotate R-scale…

Is there any chance ?

Do you mean something like child compensate?

I´m trying to replicate the Maya´s linear expression link 1 (http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/Commands/linstep.html) link2 (http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/index.html?url=Useful_functions_linstep.htm,topicNumber=d0e172899) link3 (http://www.orbaz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=874&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=&sid=1d59f91f6bbf859f8ba2506c43fa15e3) ...
Could someone please ckeck if i am in the right direction ? (screen is attached)

Is there any simpler solution, by the way ?

Thanks in advance

The linear interpolate (http://softimage.wiki.softimage.com/xsidocs/iceref_Linear_Interpolate.htm) node ?
