About the Deformation Effect

The Deformation effect can be used to animate bitmap or vector-based graphics – it even works on gradients and textures. The Deformation effect acts as a skeleton in which you can maneuver different articulations or bend it into a fluid curve. It can be useful in many situations including cut-out animation. When paired with your creativity, the Deformation effect can produce some stunning results.

The Deform Group will be created automatically when using the Rigging tool. However if you want to create a Deform manually, all the modules can be accessed from the Module Library, under the Deformation tab.
