Copies vertex position of the the selected source object to selected destination vertices.
  • select vertices you want to be moved
  • ctrl-select the object from which you want to copy the vertex position in the outliner
  • type transferVertices -m 1
    (the m-parameter determines how much you want make the vertices go in the desired direction (e.g. -m 0.5 makes them go only halfway)
  • type just transferVertices and m will be 1 (default)
Both Objects should have the same topology. (Since this tool is mostly used for blendShapes, that'll be the case anyway).

Example (setup the scene, two spheres with same topology, one is deformed):

$src = `polySphere -r 1 -sx 100 -sy 100 -ax 0 1 0 -cuv 2 -ch 1`;
$dest = `duplicate -rr $src[0]`;
move -r -os -wd 5 0 0 $dest[0];
setAttr ($src[0] + ".scaleY") 3;
makeIdentity -apply true -t 0 -r 0 -s 1 -n 0 $src[0];
select -r ($dest[0] + ".vtx[0:3000]");
select -tgl $src[0];

Now execute the command:

transferVertices -m .5
