3D modifiers

3D modifiers are chainable elements that sequentially modify the geometry. Attribute modifiers modify attributes of the vertices (e.g. the color or UV coordinate), Distort modifiers act on the spatial positions of the vertices and Operator modifiers are more general transformation that for example transform one type of geometry into another one.

To add a 3D modifier to a layer, right click on this layer and use menu Modifiers.

We review here the three categories of 3D modifiers.

In this example, you'll see a Geosphere rendered in purple with a thick lines renderer, from this sphere, particles are emitted then modified with a connect points and rendered in blue with another Thick Lines renderer :

Here is an illustration of mirror modifier:

The extrude modifier can be used to make 3d text
