The Lattice Plane is a powerful yet easy-to-use deformer inspired by the FFD Deformer to arbitrarily reshape an object by influencing the generator’s control points located on a 2D cage.
Whilst traditional FFD deformation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free-form_deformation) is usually delivered starting from a 3D cage of evenly spaced points which modify the target object based on the displacement of the control points using Bezier approximation, the Lattice Plane restricts the deformation cage to 2D space (actually a rectangular area) making it much easier to identify points and delivering lower computation latency due to the lower number of points.
