    Hey guys,
    I was wondering how I can bend an object like in 0:53-1:02 of this video
    I am making a similar animation and I’ve been trying to figure it out on my own, so far I’ve gotten around to make the mold using boole and now I’m trying to figure out of the top layer with the extruded circles needs to have a softbody dynamic in order to achieve that kind of “pasting” unto the bottom layer mold.

    If you have extra time on your hands, I was also wondering how to be able to track it continuously as in the video so it can be a perfect loop?

    That’s a bend deformer, you just move the object through the deformer. Like this

    I have this repeating in time by doing Track After/Continue in the Timeline but repetition like in the video would be simplest to just render one cycle and then repeat it in a video editing program.
