Here is a example that vtkTransform object failed to deep copy the other one.

#include <iostream>
#include <vtkSmartPointer.h>
#include <vtkRenderer.h>
#include <vtkRenderWindow.h>
#include <vtkTransform.h>

#define vtkSPtr vtkSmartPointer
#define vtkSPtrNew(Var, Type) vtkSPtr<Type> Var = vtkSPtr<Type>::New();

int main()
{
    setbuf( stdout, nullptr );
    vtkSPtrNew( trans, vtkTransform );
    auto matrix = trans->GetMatrix();
    matrix->SetElement( 1, 1, -1 );
    matrix->SetElement( 1, 2, 2 );
    matrix->SetElement( 2, 3, 3 );
    trans->Update();

    vtkSPtrNew( trans1, vtkTransform );
    trans1->DeepCopy( trans );
    trans1->GetMatrix()->PrintSelf( std::cout, vtkIndent() );
    return 0;
}

Output

The interface vtkTransform::InternalUpdate works in many places. It also updates the internal matrix when we call the function vtkHomogeneousTransform::GetMatrix.

The both values this->Matrix->GetMTime() and this->MatrixUpdateMTime are same in our case. Add this->Input is null pointer, so we will go to the logic branch we start with the identity transform as our base.
Finally, the internal matrix will be updated in vtkTransform::DeepCopy but it wii become identity matrix E after Update <- InternalUpdate.

void vtkTransform::InternalUpdate()
{
  int i;
  int nTransforms = this->Concatenation->GetNumberOfTransforms();
  int nPreTransforms = this->Concatenation->GetNumberOfPreTransforms();

  // check to see whether someone has been fooling around with our matrix
  int doTheLegacyHack = 0;
  if (this->Matrix->GetMTime() > this->MatrixUpdateMTime)
  {
    vtkDebugMacro(<<"InternalUpdate: this->Matrix was modified by something other than 'this'");

    // check to see if we have any inputs or concatenated transforms
    int isPipelined = (this->Input != nullptr);
    for (i = 0; i < nTransforms && !isPipelined; i++)
    { // the vtkSimpleTransform is just a matrix placeholder,
        // it is not a real transform
      isPipelined =
        !this->Concatenation->GetTransform(i)->IsA("vtkSimpleTransform");
    }
    // do the legacy hack only if we have no input transforms
    doTheLegacyHack = !isPipelined;
  }

  // copy matrix from input
  if (this->Input)
  {
    this->Matrix->DeepCopy(this->Input->GetMatrix());
    // if inverse flag is set, invert the matrix
    if (this->Concatenation->GetInverseFlag())
    {
      this->Matrix->Invert();
    }
  }
  else if (doTheLegacyHack)
  {
    vtkWarningMacro("InternalUpdate: doing hack to support legacy code.  "
                    "This is deprecated in VTK 4.2.  May be removed in a "
                    "future version.");
    // this heuristic works perfectly if GetMatrix() or GetMatrixPointer()
    // was called immediately prior to the matrix modifications
    // (fortunately, this is almost always the case)
    if (this->Matrix->GetMTime() > this->Concatenation->GetMaxMTime())
    { // don't apply operations that occurred after matrix modification
      nPreTransforms = nTransforms = 0;
    }
  }
  else
  {  // otherwise, we start with the identity transform as our base
    this->Matrix->Identity();
  }

  // concatenate PreTransforms
  for (i = nPreTransforms-1; i >= 0; i--)
  {
    vtkHomogeneousTransform *transform =
      static_cast<vtkHomogeneousTransform *>(this->Concatenation->GetTransform(i));
    vtkMatrix4x4::Multiply4x4(this->Matrix,transform->GetMatrix(),
                              this->Matrix);
  }

  // concatenate PostTransforms
  for (i = nPreTransforms; i < nTransforms; i++)
  {
    vtkHomogeneousTransform *transform =
      static_cast<vtkHomogeneousTransform *>(this->Concatenation->GetTransform(i));
    vtkMatrix4x4::Multiply4x4(transform->GetMatrix(),this->Matrix,
                              this->Matrix);
  }

  if (doTheLegacyHack)
  { // the transform operations have been incorporated into the matrix,
      // so delete them
    this->Concatenation->Identity();
  }
  else
  { // having this in the 'else' forces the legacy flag to be sticky
    this->MatrixUpdateMTime = this->Matrix->GetMTime();
  }
}

Let’s use a new way to copy matrix as the following code snippet. We will get the correct result.

    vtkSPtrNew( trans1, vtkTransform );
    trans1->SetInput( trans );
    trans1->GetMatrix()->PrintSelf( std::cout, vtkIndent() );

Or like this way.

    vtkSPtrNew( trans1, vtkTransform );
    vtkSPtrNew( matrix1, vtkMatrix4x4 );
    matrix1->DeepCopy( matrix );
    trans1->SetMatrix( matrix1 );
    trans1->Update();
    trans1->GetMatrix()->PrintSelf( std::cout, vtkIndent() );
