MeshDeform can't bind (Cannot get mesh from cage object)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information
Xbuntu / AMD

Blender Version

Short description of error
When trying to bind a MeshDeform, it just gives you the error message "Cannot get mesh from cage object"

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
New file (with the default cube)
Create a monkey head
Add a MeshDeform modifier to the monkey head
In the modifier, select the Cube as the object
Press "Bind"
...the error message "Cannot get mesh from cage object" gets displayed under the modifier...

Event Timeline

The problem seems to be that the cube->runtime.mesh_eval is still NULL when the mesh deform modifier executes (it binds during normal execution, not when the button is pressed afaik).
