Vector Field

A vector field is a special type of space warp that crowd members can use to move around irregular objects such as a curved, concave surface. The vector field object, a box-shaped lattice, is placed and sized so that it surrounds the object to be avoided. The vectors are generated from the lattice intersections. These vectors are, by default, perpendicular to the surface of the object to which the field is applied; if necessary, you can smooth them out with a blending function. The crowd members move around the object by traveling perpendicular to the vectors.
