3D Noise in Element 3D V2!

One of my favorite new features in Element 3D V2 is the new 3D Noise options and deformation!

Here are a few experiments where I use various bends and twists along with 3D distortion to stretch a sphere around. I don’t know what these things are but I feel like eating ice cream and licorice now!

Check Out Element 3D V2 and see what’s possible!
