Hey all I'd like to know how to apply a path deform modifier in Maya. If anyone knows it would be a big help.



Hi all...quick question...I'm trying to model some chains around my trolls body, as in the example ive included. now i know i can duplicate each link and manually place them but instead id really like to know if theres a quicker way to extrude along a curve or something like that....because the goal im goin for is like the 2nd image included.

1. Model a straight chain

2. Make a spline for the model

3. Add a path deform modifier on the chain, using the spline as the path
