In this tutorial, Tim Clapham from helloluxx.com takes you step by step through the process of building an align to spline expression using Cinema4D and Xpresso.
The advantage of this set up over the built in expression is that the position along the spline is not clamped between 0-100%, therefore the object can be looped along the spline multiple times. Tim also adds a tangential option with a parameter that allows you to define the axis used for alignment.
The Inheritance Effector is probably one of the most underrated and underutilized effectors in the effector menu. In part one of my Inheritance Effector tutorial, I show you how you can trigger or offset keyframed animation applied to an object that you cloned.
Save time & keyframes! In this tutorial, I'll show you a few ways to achieve continuous, keyframe-less animations inside of After Effects and then Cinema 4D using expressions, Mograph Deformers, and Xpresso.
This is a render of a data stream setup I made for the Target Fall National 2013. It's not the whole piece, just some snipets from one section. The setup I made allowed me to get a completely different look just by changing the spline. The camera follows the head of the stream while randomly moving around to give it a little more chaos.
