I've got this idea, to try and recreate the Doctor Strange reality bending effect. With that I mean the one where the floor peels back and twirls on itself. I thought it would be relatively easy to do, but I've found myself with some problems, I tried to add loop cuts to a plane to act as steps, use the edge split modifier, then the solidify, and lastly the simple deform. But it affects the whole mesh so I used a vertex weigh proximity modifier, but this one only affects on one point. Is there a way to do this effect without using drivers and making the scene very over-complicated? Image of the actual effect for referenceExample

    $\begingroup$ hello, your picture is very dark and blurry, do you have other references? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 26 '20 at 14:03
  • $\begingroup$ The best reference I can give you is the actual scene $\endgroup$ – Throndronis Sep 26 '20 at 14:44
  • $\begingroup$ have you tried the Lattice or the Mesh Deform or Surface Deform modifiers? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 26 '20 at 14:53
  • $\begingroup$ For the stair stpes, using a Array Modifier with Object Offset should do the job. This sprial stair tutorial may help. youtube.com/watch?v=vZDHC_vL_7Y $\endgroup$ – MA Jacob Sep 26 '20 at 16:31

Actually your idea of using the Simple Deform modifier seems to work with the Twist option and an empty as Origin that you move on the X axis. Once your good, parent both the stairs and the empty to a new empty that you rotate 45° on the Y axis:

In the clip you show, the stairs don't even seem to bend on their height, they just duplicate the first stairs and delayed a bit the animation, imho it's as simple as that, but you can also deform it a bit with a Lattice or a Mesh Deform modifier.
