Chapter 13. Deformers

Chapter 13. Deformers

Wrinkles, waves, and folds are just a few of the things you can create using Maya’s deformer tools and a few simple mouse clicks. You can use these versatile tools to manipulate surfaces with the greatest of precision, as well as to simplify the selection and transformation of complex surfaces. Whether you’re creating a twisted logo or a water droplet in a glass, you can find a deformer that fits the bill and makes the task a breeze.

Say, for example, you wanted to create a model of an elderly person: You could use the Wire deformer to create the fine folds and wrinkles of the face, and the Sculpt deformer for the areas of the face that you want to be more rounded.
