Spline Deformer Object

The Spline Deformer deforms objects using two splines: an original spline and a modifying spline. The Spline deformer considers the differences in position and shape of the two splines and deforms the object accordingly.

The Spline deformer is especially useful for character modeling and animation. For example, you can use several modifying splines to quickly and easily create various facial expressions or tendons stretching the skin.

To use the Spline deformer, draw a spline on the surface of the object that you wish to deform. You can do this in a number of ways:

While you draw the spline, use the snap settings to snap the spline to the polygons of the nearby object.
