Displaying the Deformation Controls

To be able to manipulate the deformer outside of the Setup Mode, you must enable the Deformation Controls.

If you have just created the bone rig, the controls will still be showing. However, whenever you close your project the deformers are turned off, so when you reopen the project you can show the ones you need while you're animating.

You can also select all the modules from your Network view and select View > Show > Controls from the top menu.

To display the selected deformation controls:

1. In the Network view, select the Deformation Group containing the deformation chain you want to display.
2. In the Camera View toolbar, click on the Show Control button. You can also select View > Show > Control from the top menu or press [Shift] + [F11].

To display the selected deformation controls and hide all the others:

1. In the Network view, select the Deformation Group containing the deformation chain you want to display.
2. In the Deformation toolbar, click on the Show Selected Deformers and Hide All Others button.

The selected deformation controls will appear in the Camera view and all the others will be hidden.

To display all the deformer controls at the same time:

1. In the Top level of the Network view,select Edit > Select All from the top menu to select all the modules or press [Ctrl] + [A] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [A] (Mac OS X).
2. In the Camera View toolbar, select Show Control or press [Shift] + [F11]. This will display all the deformation controls in your scene.

To hide the deformer controls:

In the Camera View toolbar, click on the Hide All Controls button. You can also select View > Hide All Controls from the top menu or press [Shift] + [C].
