I have quite complex snaky shape and I'd want to use lattice modifier to change it. Let's say the object is S-shape in 3 dimensions. So using a big cube lattice doesn't work because the control points are randomly scattered around the snaky shape.
I was hoping I could create something like a long cube lattice object, edit that to match the shape and use that as a starting lattice for the lattice modifier. So that initially it doesn't change anything when you add the modifier and add that lattice as its target. But has already the general shape of the snaky shape to make adjusting the lattice easier. I hope you understand what I mean/want.
I made a blend that shows the issue:
I hope those work for you.
