Using Deformers to manipulate geometry. Easy Animation & Modeling.
Watch this introductory video over modeling with non-linear deformers and then continue on to the course on Pluralsight.
PART 01: Create a couple of interesting shapes. Start with a basic primitive and duplicate it several times to create interesting shapes using different deformers. Post Snips of your different shapes to your blog.
PART 02: Use one of your previous models to create an animation using deformers. Set keys and playblast the animation from a close camera angle.
PART 03: Create a simple character face and use blend deformers to animate different emotions. Playblast out the different emotions and post them to your blog.
