View Full Version : Wrap deformer doesn't do anything.

07 July 2005, 10:48 PM
I'm setting up a wrap for a low and high poly hand. I duplicate the low and smooth it, I then do a wrap on the two and get no errors. When I modify the wrap I can tell that Maya is calculating the deformations but it doesn't show up visually. The weird thing is that I never have trouble with any other wrap objects, just this hand. All the history is deleted and if I wrap say a cube to the hand it works fine. Any ideas?

if you just want it smoothed, why not just smooth the original, and drive the divisions or envelope to turn it no/off?
that will save you a ton of RAM and time.

if you need it to be another object.. use an outmesh->inMesh connection then smooth.

only use a wrap if you have to, they are evil.

Yeah, that sounds good. I haven't used wraps much so I'll take your word for it. I'm using one hand that will be used for many still poses and I just want to be able to edit the topology for each pose. Thanks
