Hi wesware,

Typically I need an example file. Perhaps next time. Thanks for considering.

I have no idea about your setup, but try this:

Instead of placing any deformer on the object with the Mesh Deformer, use the extra Deformers on the "Cage" itself.

If you have a suggestion for Maxon, the channel is here:

All the best
