I’m trying to use a displacer deformer on cloned objects but I want it to only affect some (random) clones. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Hi tlitostansky,

It is a good practice to attach a sample project file to a question. Otherwise, it is nearly a general question, which typically creates a few follow-up questions.

Anyway, I’m happy to share an idea here, of course:

Please explore the Displacer> Falloff, and here the MoGraph Selection, see Layer> Layer Controls.
I showcase this a little bit in the 60-second screen capture.

Let me know if that works for you.

All the best

That is really perfect! Thank you so much. I will also attach a project file next time, but you got it in 1. smile

You’re very welcome, tlitostansky.

Thanks for being open to sharing a file with a new question.
I’m always happy to provide an upload link.

For security reasons, I use only a few cloud services (Dropbox, Amazon, Google, Apple, Adobe, and Wetransfer. Since I share many files, I need to make that safe for everyone. I hope that makes sense.)

Have a great weekend
