    In Lightwave there is a command called Jitter, you select a number of vertices on a mesh and the Jitter command will move all the points a random amount in one or more directions (amount and directions can be selected), for example to add some imperfections to a flat surface, does C4D have something that works in the same way ?

    You could use a Displacer deformer, or add a Displacement channel to the surface’s material (the result of which will only be seen when rendered).

    Mesh/Commands/Set Point Value (that’s where it is in R20 – I don’t have R21 at work) needs to be editable in Point mode and use the Crumple option is another option

    Thanks, that worked very well (It’s under Mesh/Move/Set Point value in R21)
