View Full Version : Cage Deformer moves points when applied

05 May 2002, 05:35 PM
Hi people!

I'm having troubles with the Cage Deformer. When I apply to a point cluster
of an object a cage deformer, as soon as I end the picking session the
points move! Here is what I did:

The cage object:
-The cage was made from the same mesh as the object I want to deform with
the cage;
-I deleted every possible clusters and operators on the cage object;
-I freezed the transforms and freezed the center operator;
-I putted the cage object on the Scene_Root level;

The deformed object:
-This object has an envelope operator;
-I selected the points to be deformed and did an Assign To No Deformers;
-I created a cluster with these points;
-It is on this cluster that I want to apply the cage deform.

The cage object stays where it is, it's really the cluster that moves.

Am I missing something?

Merci - Thanks

Salut Dino,

Oui je commence chez Tube dans une semaine :buttrock:
Et toi?

Merci pour le conseil. Je doute que de m'adresser directement à Manny pour du troubleshooting soit bienvenu, après tout c'est pour ça que le support, le mailing list et les forums existent.

À plus!

Bravo, bonne chance dans ton nouveau emploi, moi j'ai rien trouvé encore, je continue à travailler mon démo et appliquer un peu partout.

J'applique même dans l'ouest canadien.

Il n'y a pas de problème pour les e-mails à manny, t'a juste à
mentionner que tu viens d'icari et que tu me connais.
