Learn how to use the Spline deformer, which uses two splines to deform an object between them.

This video shows how to apply the Spline deformer to a landscape to make a crater, and how to create a rig to use the Spline deformer to create simple wave or “mouse under the rug” effects. This rig uses two sets of nulls and the MoGraph Tracer object to create splines that are deformed with the Spline deformer.

Thanks to yader on Vimeo for the rig design.
