wrinkle is undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.

The wrinkle command is used to create a network of wrinkles on a surface. It automatically creates a network of wrinkle curves that control a wire deformer. The wrinkle curves are attached to a cluster deformer.

Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
-style(-st) string create
Specifies the wrinkle style. Valid values are "radial" or "tangential"
-center(-ct) linear linear linear create
Specifies the center of the wrinkle.
-axis(-ax) linear linear linear create
Specifies the plane of the wrinkle.
-dropoffDistance(-dds) linear create
Specifies the dropoff distance around the center.
-wrinkleCount(-wc) uint create
Specifies the number of wrinkle lines to be generated. Default is 3.
-branchCount(-brc) uint create
Specifies the number of branches per wrinkle. Default is 2.
-branchDepth(-bd) uint create
Specifies the depth of the branching. Default is 0.
-wrinkleIntensity(-wi) linear create
Increasing the intensity makes it more wrinkly. Default is 0.5.
-envelope(-en) linear create
The envelope globally attenuates the amount of deformation. Default is 1.0.
-randomness(-rnd) linear create
Amount of randomness. Default is 0.2.
-thickness(-th) linear create
Wrinkle thickness. Default is 1.0.
-uvSpace(-uv) linear linear linear linear linear create
1/2 length, 1/2 breadth, rotation angle, center u, v definition of a patch in uv space where the wrinkle is to be constructed.
-crease(-cr) string createmultiuse
Specifies an existing curve to serve as the wrinkle.
