Chapter 13. Deformers > The Lattice

The Lattice

The Lattice is one of Maya’s most used, and most functional, deformers. You can use it to simplify CV selection on a complex surface, to create the point of a character’s elbow, or to provide added control to surface areas prone to creasing (for example, elbows and knees).

Lattice deformers surround deformable objects with a box-like shape called a lattice (Figure 13.18). The lattice is then used to select and deform the surface by moving, rotating, or scaling the lattice structure (Figure 13.19). Lattices are also deformable objects, which means you can add other deformers to deform the lattice (and the object it’s deforming).
