So, here's another Lattice tool..... it's NEW AND IMPROVED, IT'S SUPER LATTICE MODIFIER!!
The script has been rewritten from the ground up and approaches the problem of creating a lattice from given geometry in a completely different manner from my previous efforts... this time I have used Paint Effects for the lattice geometry as they allow for real time updating whenever the control object is adjusted or added to.
Gone away is the REFRESH button because things just don't need refreshing any more, and here to stay is the EXTRUDE button which allows you to... well.... extrude the selected component or object, there's even a toggle switch for Keep Faces Together so you don't need to use those pesky Maya menus.
You can even extend the lattice tubes beyond the length of the control object to make scaffolding or bamboo like structures... neat!
The video will explain everything you need to know about the functionality of the tool so watch it, enjoy it and start making lovely latticy objects that your mates will marvel in astonishment at when they see them, they'll probably say things like .... "whoa man, those lattice things are gnarly.... you must be some kind of genius or something!"
So enjoy the tool, it's free, and make some pretty things to render and animate, I can't wait to see them!
If you've got any feedback about Super Lattice Modifier 1.0.0 then please mail me with it. I'll read it and then try to implement suggested ideas or work on issues that may arise.
