Deformation

Scale Controls

The Scale Controls Preferences let you customize the appearance of the Deformation-Scale and Deformation-Uniform-Scale controls by setting the desired distance from the deformer axis.

Display Scaling Module in Pixel Size: This preference is disabled by default. The distance between the controls and the deformer axis is calculated using fields as a value. You can enable this option to change the value to pixels.
Scaling Field Size: The default value is 2 fields, meaning that the distance between the controls and the deformer axis is 2 fields. You can enter any field value you want. When the Display Scaling Module in Pixel Size preference is enabled, this option changes to Scaling Pixel Size.
Scaling Pixel Size: When the Display Scaling Module in Pixel Size is enabled, this option appears instead of Scaling Field Size. The default value is 64 pixels, meaning that the distance between the controls and the deformer axis is 64 pixels. You can enter any pixel value you want.

Deformation Creation

Create Posed Deformer in Create Deformation Above/Under: This preference is enabled by default. When enabled, the Deformer groups will automatically be built using the more advanced structure, which lets you rig and manipulate deformers for several views of a character turnaround within a single element. When this preference is disabled, the structure within the Deformation Group will be simpler and will disallow a different rig on each drawing of the same element.
Refer to the topic Creating a Full Character Turnaround Deformation Rig to learn more about Posed deformer.

Refer to the topic Creating a Basic Deformation Rig to learn more about rigging with this preference disabled.

Deformation Convert Deformed Drawings

Texture Resolution when Converting Gradient and Textures: This preference sets the size of the bitmap texture used during the conversion of deformed drawings to drawings. The maximum value accepted is 2048 pixels.
