Smart warp mesh cage

Postby ruscular3d » Sat Nov 04, 2017 10:23 pm

Animated mesh warp cage. Something like a magnifying glass moving over any object that can stretch or warp an image. Similar to the bulge effect in after effect.

Magnifying glass effect, flat tire rolling on surface. warp effect of blackhole across space. Its one thing to smart mesh a still object, but to mesh warp an area across the canvas is another challenge.

You can do that with pin bones or mesh , look for tutes.
Here's the simple pin bone for starters.
Make a pin bone flexi bound to your layer go to frame one and scale it up, boomshanka.
You can do the same with mesh and get a better fisheye bulge.
When the layer moves UNDER the pin or mesh to get that distorto effect . Try dragging the layer under it.

I am so sorry for not following up on this, and taking a year to look at this. I am so flabberghasted in this solution. This is brilliant! Thanks for posting this. I do a lot of 3D program rendering and then turning them into smart mesh obj in Moho. Using another program that isn't Moho even if it just for images that can be smart meshed control asset for the animation isn't shared enough in the Moho community. I would love to see more of this in Moho.
