Loop strength value of bend deformer


Recommended Posts


Sorry if this is very noobish.


I want to animate a simple fish model using the bend deformer to wiggle the body. I'd like expresso to loop the strength value between say +30 and -30 degrees.

How could I set up expresso with user data so that I would get this:

- A user data that says Speed. This would increase the loop speed between +30 and -30. This would make the swimming faster.

- Another that says Strength. This would increase the bend to any number, say +50 to -50. This would make the swimming more forceful.


Super grateful for any advice!

JED, thank you, that's exactly what I was after!


About the Sin function - I did some tinkering and found that the Range mapper set to modulo had the same effect. But Sin was more elegant 😉


Thanks again/
