Join Jason Baskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using lattices and wrap deformers, part of Facial Rigging in Maya.
…Maya's Lattice Deformer is familiar to most modelers but many users overlook a…simple setting on the lattice deformer that…can help produce much more organic edits.…And the rap deformer is very similar to the lattice…in function but allows for even more localized and controlled defamation.…In this lesson, we'll begin working with both of these tools…and explore how they can be useful additions to our rigging arsenal.…So when I put a lot of effort into creating a face model…with strong topology like this one it's nice to be able to reuse that.…
And I know a lot of modelers will start out with sort of a prototype mesh of a…head or hands and they'll use that as the…sort of foundation for creating additional variations down the line.…So I've duplicated this face and in order to make some character…edits to the mesh I'm going to select the brows and hair.…I'll leave the eyes behind for now.…I'll select the mustache as well and go to Create Deformers and choose Lattice.…The lattice deformer creates a modification box consisting of a specified…
