The nonLinear deformer node is used to deform components according to an arbitrary deformer function. The deformation function and its required parameters reside on a deformFunc node that should be connected to the nonLinear through the deformerData attribute. Examples of deformFunc nodes are deformBend, deformSine, deformSquash, deformWave, etc.
