But what's actually the use?

Hi everyone…i read (or scanned through) the warp tutorial, but i couldnt actually figure out what the warp thingy does…could someone help me?

there are 2 warps function in blender

1 - in map output panel for texture
in the map output panel it use to warp an object through another one a little like the NOR function - it does a displacement of a mesh
but more powrfull in a way
2 - a warp function in the menu
and the function for warping a mesh around another one
like warpring text around a circle

but more powrfull in a way


If you are talking about the modeling tool, it warps an object around another. This is useful for text, but can also be used for other cool things.
