Introduction to Maya - Modeling Fundamentals Vol 1
This course will look at the fundamentals of modeling in Maya with an emphasis on creating good topology. We'll look at what makes a good model in Maya and why objects are modeled in the way they are.

Problem with deformer set cv's

There is probably a simple answer to my problem so here goes:

I've selected a load of cv's and applied a lattice deformer to them. The lattice appears and works fine. However, say for example I missed a cv that was meant to for the lattice. Well I need to add that cv to the lattice, but no matter what I do I can't seem to add any more cv's to the lattice, although I can remove them easily using paint set membership tool. I must be something wrong!

Please help...

when in set membership, did you remmber to use add as the function? not remove

another thing you could try is
window>relationship editors>deformer sets

I haven't tried this yet, so it's possible it won't work, but try selecting the lattice and under your animation menu, go to Deform > Edit Membership.

I believe you should see all the vertices that are affected by the lattice turn yellow and the others turn pink or something. Shift select the vertices you want to add.

Let me know if this works. I'll try to confirm when next I've got Maya ready.

Yeah, Edit Membership works a treat. Much simpler than the way I was previously working. Nice one.
