Learn how to use the Smoothing deformer, which smooths out the edges of polygons so they’re rounded.

This video shows how to use the Smoothing deformer to sculpt the tentacles/arms on a bacteria. A falloff is used to keep the bacteria’s body round while smoothing only the tentacles/arms. This deformer is a great all-purpose smoothing tool, and is also useful for making organic, sculpted-looking objects.
