Hi guys;

How can I control “Bend SOP” (or other SOPs like that) parameters, using an attribute?


Thanks.

It doesn't look like this node can be evaluated per point, it will take the first point's attibute value. You can go:

detail(0,"attributeName",0)

have you tried to unlock the bend node and dive into it?
It's built upon point wrangles. You might be able to customize it to suits your needs

Hi,

if interested, here is an an older experimental bend deformer using an attribute wrangle, where you can easily add local deformation attributes. I've done this for you, just add a point attribute called @bend (1 ~ full bend, 0 ~ no bend).
I've also tried doing this with the bend deformer (with no success).

Nice idea Andrea,

I thought it wasn't editable. It is quite easy. Just multiply the “theta” with your attribute (in “deformationwrangle1”).

(By the way) you can do the same for the origin …
