FFD Object

Basic Coord. Object

FFD Object

The FFD deforms objects freely using any number of grid points, hence the name Free Form Deformer. The FFD deformer affects vertices of any object that reside within the original unmodified FFD cage.

In contrast to the other deformers, you must edit the FFD in point mode (there are no handles to move, only grid points to manipulate).

You can animate an FFD deformer using morph targets or PLA.
