Lock Path Deform Stretch
show user profile  FX
Is there anyway to lock the stretch on path deform ?

I've rigged a bracelet that needs to wrap around a wrist using path deform with linked xforms & dummies on the spline, as you can see the stretch is messing up the effect.

I guess path deform hasn't changed much since 3.1, it's bloody infuriating to use, may have to simplify :/

You really should give PathDeform2 a try as part of Spline Tools. I wrote it overcome many of the limitations of PathDeform. You can download the demo to see if it will help:

There are plenty of demo animations too:

Thanks, but I'm just going to key-frame it as best I can, it doesn't need to be perfect as it's just showcasing a concept to a client.

I'm tired of reaching the limitations of Max then reaching for my wallet.
