By default, when you have a deformer parented to an object, you can hit Fit to Parent so it inherits the parent’s overall size.
However, I want the deformer to match the specific selection of faces.
Is that possible?
So far, what I have come up is
(1) Duplicate the model.
(2) Select the specific faces.
(3) Invert selection. Delete it
(4) Then parent the deformer to the duplicated/stripped down model.
(5) Fit to parent
(6) Then reparent the deformer to the original model.
It’s a bit lengthy. So I was thinking if anyone knows a better way?
Thank you for looking at the problem.
P.S. Not being bratty about this, but this is the default behavior of Maya’s deformers (say FFD), that is fit to selection. Which I guess makes perfect sense.
