new to Blender but really enjoying it. There is one specific effect that i've used a fair bit in After-effects & fusion which is grid/mesh warp. Basically the software adds in a predefined number of mesh/warp points, & you can drag them out to create interesting effects.
This is a simple animation I made using grid-warp to give the impression the tree was swaying gently in the wind.
Attached is an After-effects screen grab.
I've imported an alpha channel .PNG into blender as a plane, but have been stuck for days as to an easy way to warp it.
Any help much appreciated.
Ok that sounds hopeful :) ..any links to tutorials?....since posting the question I've got as far as using ‘loop cut’ in edit mode to make a grid, & this can be deformed, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to keyframe the deformation..
