Chapter 13. Deformers > Nonlinear Deformers

Nonlinear Deformers

You can use nonlinear deformers to quickly bend, twist, flare, or even squash a surface, greatly speeding tasks that would otherwise require multiple CV selections, rotations, scales, and transformations. Create a spiral staircase out of a cube with the Twist deformer. Bend a steel spoon with ease using a Bend deformer, or create bell-bottom pants using the Flare deformer. Each of the nonlinear deformers performs a specific task related directly to its name. Nonlinear deformers include Bend, Flare, Sine, Squash, Twist, and Wave (Figure 13.1).
