Hey Fablers. In this video, we're going to take a look at the Pinch Deformer. So we have a simple scene here. We've got our layer selected. We're going to go to our top right effects library as usual. Let's type in pinch. Click, drag, and drop. And there you have it. Now the first setting here is the axes. X or Y plane.
Now this refers to, if you're on the X plane, you'll notice that it basically deforms the left and the right edges along the horizontal plane. If we switch this to Y now it is top to bottom. The next interesting parameter that we have here is the amount, obviously this dictates how much of the effect is applied.
And our center point allows us to skew the direction in which this effect is actually applied to our scene. Then we have curve amount which will create this really cool sort of bendy effect. Depending how you move this, you can get some real defined, really exaggerated looking curves, shapes and images.
The invert button will basically flip what our effect is doing. It's a quick way to mirror the effect. And lastly, we have our opacity, which will control how much of the effect is visible over the underlying asset.
