Properties

<Twist>.angle Float default: 0.0 -- animatable

The amount of twist around the vertical axis.

<Twist>.bias Integer default: 0 -- animatable

Causes the twist rotation to bunch up at either end of the object. When the parameter is negative, the object twists closer to the gizmo center. When the value is positive, the object twists more away from the gizmo center. When the parameter is 0, the twisting is uniform.

<Twist>.axis Integer default: 2

The axis along which the twist will occur. This is the local axis of the Twist gizmo.

0- X

1- Y

2- Z

<Twist>.limit Boolean default: false

When on, applies limit constraints to the Twist modifier.

<Twist>.upperlimit Float default: 0.0 -- animatable, alias: Upper_Limit

The upper limit for the twist effect.

<Twist>.lowerlimit Float default: 0.0 -- animatable, alias: Lower_Limit

The lower limit for the twist effect.

<Twist>.center Point3 default: [0,0,0] -- animatable

You can translate and animate the center at this sub-object level, altering the Twist gizmo’s shape, and thus the shape of the twisted object.

<Twist>.gizmo SubAnim

You can transform and animate the gizmo like any other object at this sub-object level, altering the effect of the Twist modifier. Translating the gizmo translates its center an equal distance. Rotating and scaling the gizmo takes place with respect to its center.

<Twist.Gizmo>.position Point3 default: [0,0,0] -- animatable

The position of the twist gizmo.

<Twist.Gizmo>.rotation Quat default: (quat 0 0 0 1) -- animatable
