Morph Deformers

  Morph Targets The Morph Target or the Blend Shape is the ultimate skin deformer and is used where the total control over the shape of deformation is required. The Non-Rigid deformer will only get you half way to your desired shape by moving the vertex cluster into...

Joint Deformers

  Joint Deformers The most basic type of skin deformer is the Skeleton Deformer. It is usually based on deformations of Rigid or Non-Rigid type and is driven by bone or joint binds. By binding vertexes to certain joints we are able to move clusters of vertexes around...
