Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling with lattices, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Lattices are another animation deformer that we…can use for modeling, and basically they just…put a grid of points around an object that you can use to deform it.…So let's go ahead and play with this character head that we have.…I'm going to select the head and make sure I'm in my animation menu set.…And under create deformers, we're going to go lattice, but…I'm actually going to go ahead and select the creation parameters here.…And I'm want to make sure that I have four by…four by four divisions, and then I'm going to hit create.…
And when I do, it puts a four by four box around my object.…Now this box is actually a separate object itself.…So if I look at it in the outliner, I…have my character's head, and then I have my lattice.…Now if I hover over my lattice, and right…click, you'll see I have two marking menu objects.…One is Object Mode, the other one is Lattice Point.…So I'm going to select Lattice Point, and…notice how all these little vertices show up.…Well, those allow me to reshape my character.…
