Doesn't recognize deformers

Submitted by: ShuiYue ShuiYue
I am using maya 2014, I have added the script from a python tab in the script editor.  When I run the script and spesify the clusters I am using but I get an error message saying # Error: 'Source deformer' and 'Destination deformer' must be deformers #

I tried it on a fresh mesh and new clusters, It did not work. 

Help Please?

    Hi, you should specify a deformer itself not a transform. So you need to enter "cluster1" (for example) instead of "clusterHandle1". Error: 'Source deformer' and 'Destination deformer' must be deformers # This error means that you have entered not deformers, but their transforms. Thanks for using my scripts!

    Thanks, Its working now! I bring in the name of my cluster and add "Cluster" at the end of it. i.e. 'cl_l_mid_lowLid_01' >> 'cl_l_mid_lowLid_01Cluster'
