magnetic mesh
« on: August 12, 2009, 03:07:04 am »

this is just a thought. would there be a way to use one object to move points on another object? I know in scene mode that you can target things. this might not be clear cause its kinda hard to explain so ill give an example.


Object 1:
Say you have a flat mesh with 500 polys.

Object 2:
You have a sphere.

The sphere would be the object with the attribute. Once you move the sphere to the middle of object 1 the pollies on object 1 would move as you poistion object 2(the sphere).

heres my text diagram-
object 2   Object 1

O                  l


after you use the effect

object 2   Object 1

O                  )


The main thing is that you can push and pull. it should have a simple button or hotkey. and there should be an option to select which polies you want to have the effect on.

this would be very usefull for many things. You can round things out and you can form things around other things.

I hope i explained myself. And i hope it can be done it would be very usefull.
