Mighty Morphing Time!

Okay, since Rendering is deciding to not work for me still, I will explain how to morph objects!

Okay so, I will pick a piece of fruit we will make with morphing; an apple!

Don’t worry, this one is very easy to do, and most of you won’t need to read half of this once you get the hang of it!

So, in Maya, create a sphere, this will be under the “Create” tab. It’s right where the tabs “File”, “Edit”, and other ones are.

Next, you will need to do something that is a little difficult for beginners(and very hard for me to understand for 10 minutes of class); selecting isoparms….i know it already sounds hard and boring. What you need to do is this: at the top of the window, you will see a little “/” symbol. Click and hold that until you see “select isoparms”. After that, you will see a bunch of little dots around the sphere. Select the bottom half isoparms on the sphere, and then click on the tool that is a cube being stretched. What that tool is, is called the “deform” tool.

Now, since this is an apple, i would say that you need to drag the bottom half of the sphere down a little bit, so click on the green arrow of the deform tool. Now your apple should be a little stretched out. now that you know how to deform the sphere and select isoparms, you can make parts of the sphere bumpy and more concave. BEFORE YOU DO THAT: rotate the sphere until you reach the bottom of the sphere. Select the isoparms on the bottom, and use the deform tool to make the bottom of the sphere concave. This will give the sphere a more flat and fruit-like bottom. Do the same thing on the top of the sphere! Now, after you get the bumps you want with the deform tool, you simply change the color of your stemless apple to any color you want and BAM! your own new apple! woo!

If you have any problems, email me at balgowr1@tcnj.edu

P.S: Send me the apple pictures you made! I’d love to see them!!!!

It's stemless, but still yummy!
