Moving and disturbing meshes


form·Z offers a variety of deformation operations that can be applied to meshed objects to change their shape.

The Move Mesh operation uses a user defined profile shape to smoothly move the points of a mesh that fall within an interactively determined region. The region of the mesh to be moved can be circular or linear. Examples of mesh movements and the profiles used are shown below.


The Disturb operation changes the appearance of a mesh by applying either a random disturbance to all the points of a mesh, or a mathematically calculated wave movement. Both are illustrated below.
