An interesting look at a use for the Tension Tag in Cinema 4D where tutorial author Yader uses the Tension Tag with a displace deformer on an object level in Cinema 4D to create dynamic wrinkles and creases. Pretty cool.
Yader notes: “There is an old tag dating back from version 10 called tension tag as part of the mocca module which reacts to deformed polygons. It’s basically gives feedback as where polygons are stretched and squashed and writes this back into a vertex map. With this vertex map you can generate extra wrinkles and creases dynamically on your geometry.”
