Parent-child relationship structure

Deforma Parent-Child Relationship

In this section, you will learn how the deforma parent-child relationship works.
First, check out the video below to see Deforma's parent-child relationship.


(1) Warp deformers and rotation deformers can be set as the “parent” of an ArtMesh.
(2) An ArtMesh that has a deformer parent is called a “child” of that deformer.


The nature of the parent-child relationship is that if you deform the parent, the deformation will be reflected in the child, but deforming the child will not affect the parent.
“Children follow their parents, so when the parents move, the children move.”

Moving the parent deformer

When you move the parent deformer, all the child elements inside follow.

Move Child Deformer

If a child is moved, the parent is not affected.

Parent deformer transformation

When the parent deformer is deformed, the child elements within it are deformed accordingly.

Child deformer deformation

If a transformation is applied to a child, it does not affect the parent.
