  8. Xpresso Seven segment clock

    An Xpresso experiment, all of the numbers are made of segments instead of a typeface. It has a time offset function, click on the 'Digital Clock' object and you can advance the time shown on the display. Display color can be modified with the Master Color texture, changing the Color parameters changes the color for all of the segments.

    Uses Xpresso for all display functions, colons blink, AM/PM indicator and is accurate for whatever time base your movie is rendered at. Handy for dropping a clock into a scene, setting color and time and then forgetting about it. The clock increments based upon the offset adjustment and current frame.

    The Xpresso code was a lot of fun to trouble shoot and get working exactly the way I wanted it to work. If you have any suggestions I'd be interested in hearing them.

  9. XP Cafe Spark Plug

    Xpresso controller for a simulated spark plug flash using a standard Omni Light.

    Any number of plugs can be used. Just add or take away from the Link List & Object List fields.
    Firing order is easily set by changing the sequence in the Link List field.
    Two samples included in the zip file. A straight 1 to 6 firing and a simple V6 stepping order. (Plus a sample V6 movie.)

    User Data slider controls for speed and duration.
    Auto reset of sequence when rewound to frame 0.

    This XPresso rig uses a single MonoFlop as the main node. This means a couple of restictions on the parameters.
    A double MonoFlop node set-up would overcome these but this is a sample 'educational' file.

    The XPresso has full comments for each node group.

    For detailed explanations on the working of the MonoFlop Node, refer to the 3 "Meet the Flops" in the Tutorials Section.

  10. XP Book Case

    XPresso controlled Book Case generator.

    Easy to use Book Case builder all controlled through User Data sliders.

    Parameters available:

    Cabinet Width, Height, Depth and thickness.
    Shelf and vertical divider count.

    Shelves and dividers auto fit length and height to the inner cabinet space.

    You can easily adjust the User Data parameters if the dimensions don't suit your needs. Don't worry, you can do it without touching the actual XPresso.

    Mix and match different shelving settings by nesting duplicates under a Cloner. The main unit has the Object Axis zeroed to the rear left bottom corner for easy alignment. Just add a base plinth and twiddle.

    Have fun, Alan.

  11. Digital Clock / Countdown or up timer

    The attached scene is an XPresso rig that counts down in seconds. You can easily alter it to count up in seconds or change it to minutes and seconds just by altering the constant node's animated values. If you do make changes, make sure to head into the timeline and change the keyframe interpolation to linear. If you don't the clock will speed up and slow down.

    The font is a free digital font that I downloaded off the net.

  12. Xpresso Ghosting Rig - Animation Helper.

    This is an animation workflow helper that allows you to see the animated path of an object in the viewport, press play to see the example work.
    To reuse it just copy the null with the xpresso tags into a new scene file and drag your IK controller (or any other object you want to trace) into the 'Controller Object' userdata link field on the null. If you change the object properties of the null it will change the traces too.

    I made a little demo video showing it in use, that's included in the zip file.

    Users with R11 can use the Display tag to get a similar effect (with more options!) but users with R10.1 or 10.5 may find this useful.

    Cheers,
    Brian

  15. XPresso powered doors

    Here's 2 scene files that demonstrate how to make 2 doors open as an object approaches. The doors3spline.c4d file is a modification of the doors2.c4d file where the Rangemapper node has a spline curve that makes the door movement start off slowly and accelerate.

  16. Tag Scripts

    This is a set of scripts that lets you assign tags to objects with a single click or keystroke. Use the included tag scripts pallet file to dock these scripts at the top of your Object Manager. One script (AlignToSplineWithTargetSpline.CSC) allows you to assign an Align to Spline tag to selected objects with the first selected spline object used as the path. Hope you find them useful.
