Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Using an FFD modifier, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
In this video we'll be taking a look at how to use the FFD modifier which is also …known as a lattice. An FFD modifier or a lattice allows you …to change the shape of an object without affecting the actual vertices of that …object directly. Now, we'll take a look at a hand that …we've created. And if you go into the basic objects …folder, in your project file that comes with this video series, you'll see a hand model.…
We'll go ahead and open that up. And this is our hand. …Now the advantage of using a lattice or an FFD to edit this hand is that we don't …have to go in and edit the many, many vertices in the hand directly. …Let's say, for example, we want to create a bit of an alien hand by elongating the …fingers and making the ends quite a bit fatter. …Again we don't need to go in and move the actual vertices or even the edges of the …object, what we can do is apply an FFD modifier.…
By simply going to the modifier list and scrolling down, you'll see a few …different entries for an FFD, you'll also see an entry for lattice. …
