Deforming Using Lattice

So below I summarised the main steps in how to deform a polygon using the lattice that surrounds it.

1. Increase the subdivisions on the polygon in the attribute editor

2. Click Deformation tab

3. Click Lattice

4. In the attribute editor click the Lattice Shape and increase the subdivisions

5. Select Lattice > right click > lattice point

NOTE: The more lattice subdivisions = less of the polygon to be affected

NOTE: Ctrl key can allow you to deselect 

6. Edit > delete by type > history

NOTE: Lattice will then treat your deformed shape as an entirely new entity
