 The wrap deformer node binds a geometry with one or more influence objects
 in such a way that transformations or deformations of the influence objects
 result in an intuitive deformation of the geometry.  The amount by which
 the motion of a component of an influence object affects a point on the
 bound geometry is a function of the distance of the component from the point.
 Influence objects can be mesh shapes, nurbs curves and nurbs

inflType (it) short2arrayoutputinputconnectablestorable
Influence type (1 = point, 2 = face)
nurbsSamples (ns) short10arrayoutputinputconnectablestorable
The number of samples to be taken on influence curves/surfaces
weightThreshold (wt) double0outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Weight threshold under which no deformation takes place
maxDistance (md) distance (double)0.0cmoutputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Distance threshold over which points on the deformed surface are not affected. Use zero to turn the max distance off.
autoWeightThreshold (awt) boolfalseoutputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Automatically compute a minumum weight cutoff such that every point on the deformed surface is affected by at least one deformer point. If this attribute is set, the maxDistance and weightThreshold attributes are ignored.
autoWeightThresholdValue (wtv) double0outputconnectable
Returns the minimum weight cutoff computed by the autoWeightThreshold option This is for UI informational purposes only.
exclusiveBind (rb) boolfalseoutputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Exclusive bind for weighting. If on, only weights of zero and one are assigned. If off, weights are computed based on distance Only applies to mesh influence objects
wtDrty (wtd) Messagen/aoutputinputconnectable
Gets marked dirty when the point weights need to be recomputed
baseDrt (bsd) Messagen/aoutputinputconnectable
Gets marked dirty every time something changes in the base geometry
