In this paper we present an adaptive and intuitive methodology for controlling the localized deformations
of physically simulated objects using an intuitive pattern-based control interface. To maximize the interactive
component presented in this approach we consolidate existing feedback mechanisms in deformable-body
control techniques to provide intuitive editing metaphors for stretching, bending, twisting, and compressing
simulated objects. The resulting movements created by these control metaphors are validated using imposed
behavior evaluation and the effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated through interactively generated
compound movements that introduce complex local deformations of objects in existing physical animations.
