Hi, The simple answer is no, you can only reform edges, curves or points. You can apply decals directly to the formed face however.
It should be possible by using the Metaform Feature.
Sadly that feature is tricky to use and poorly documented.
I think that the guys who know all the details of it are browsing this forum.
Can you upload an example ?
I am a bit sceptic that metaform will work on decals/images (it works on sheets majorly).
I will second Paul suggestion of applying the decal on deformed body instead.
One query from my side is (sorry i might be missing the reason behind it) ...the need of applying the decal on flattenned body?
Hi ! the reason behind having a flat decals, is being able to get all the design/graphic deformation prior to wrap it around whatever weird shape you want (ex: a yogourt container with graphic all around) So if I was able to have ma actual flatten area and than design a decal ON that flat pre-deform/flatten shape and wrap it back in place it would be much easier. design wise and also as presentation purposes in rendered images it would be way more realistic.
We have wanted to do the same thing with the race car livery. Sometimes when you print the art to a wrap from a flat drawing, it does not translate like the artist expected, over the curved body.
Yes, i misunderstood the question, The question is about decals/ images and that doesn't Metaform handle.
But, If you can trim a sheet body to the outline of the decal / Paint mask, you can use the metaform feature to wrap / unwrap.
