About Clusters and Weights

A cluster provides a means of controlling a set of points as a group. The points can be NURBS control vertices (CVs), polygon vertices, or lattice points. (For more information on these elements, see Chapter 4, “Selection Modes, Hiding, and Templating.”)

Points that are members of a cluster have weight. As mentioned earlier, weight represents the amount of influence the cluster has over the points it contains. Weight is generally set between 0 and 1. A point with a weight of 0 will not move with the cluster. A point with a weight of 1 will move exactly as much as the cluster itself. Anything in between will make the point move a fraction of how much the cluster moves.
