Description

Animating deformers involves the primary incorporation of effectors and influences. We'll begin this tutorial by learning about some common influences that will allow us to dictate what is being effected on a mesh. Following this we'll learn about the different effectors that provide instructions on how to affect a mesh. Along the way we'll learn how each effector can deform a mesh in very specific ways by diving into it's properties. In addition, we'll also touch on how you can add a fall-off to fine tune the visual results of your deformation. By learning how the effectors and influences in MODO function, you'll be able to begin animating deformations on your own projects. Software required: MODO 701.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Kurt, with Digital-Tutors. Welcome to this course focusing on how to animate Deformers in MODO. Animating Deformers involves the primary incorporation of Effectors and Influences. We'll begin this course by learning about some common influences that will allow us to dictate what is being affected on a mesh. Following this, we'll learn about the different Effectors that provide instructions on how to affect a mesh. Along the way, we'll learn how each Effector can deform a mesh in very specific ways by diving in to its properties. In addition, we'll also touch on how you can add a fall-off to fine tune the visual results of your deformation. By learning how the Effectors and Influences in Modo function, you'll be able to begin animating deformations on your own projects. So with that, we'll go ahead and get started in our next lesson.
