    THX a lot dude, I am trying to understand how you did it but I am having some problems, the bending parts are not reacting to the extrusions for some reason... :P As you said Jed's animations looks great, but so does yours... I will wait to see what he says about how he did it...

    WOW!! Dude this is EPIC!!! :D THX a lot for the effort I will be able to use this knowledge :D Your Manchester accent is not a problem at all, the Xpresso is the problem for me, I can see that it is very powerful but I understand ZERO of it :D Anyway this will be very good for my project :D Now all I need to figure out is how to make the Cylinder rotate at the speed I need it at with the Xpresso you made. The way I have this imagined is like this: I have a video of the song that I want the music box to play and it has a MIDI track on the video. Now the song is 5813 frames long, I want to make the Cylinder make a 360 degrees rotation in that many frames and in the video every frame a note is heard I will make a Striker on the Cylinder at that exact frame. The way I have this imagined this should work... I hope you understand What I am saying.

    That song sounds a bit long - 3 minutes for one rotation. Would you be able to fit all the notes in ? Sounds a bit ambitious to me, but to rotate the cylinder 360 degree in 5813F just keyframe start and end, and make it linear in the timeline. If you prefer XPresso, something like this - I converted 360 to radians for the math.

     

    I made this scene a while ago - it's a tune played on tubular bells in C4D. Might amuse you.

    Well I probably will make the song last for only a minute or so. Now If you have the time please watch this second explanation video I have made where I show the problem I am having now, I think that after this I will be able to complete this animation.... :D

    It's not a good idea to drive one object (bend) from multiple XPresso tags. I suggest using a Boole OR -

     

    if collision A or collision B or collision C etc > trigger the note.

     

    3strikes.c4d

     

    BTW I looked up music boxes on YouTube and they seem to run for 20-30 secs.

    COOL!!! Ok THX a lot, this looks very promising and a lot less hassle then what I had originally planed to to :P Yes I will make the animation a lot shorter :D So happy that this actually might happen the way I have imagined it, currently working on the model that is gonna be inside of the music box, don't wanna give to much away, will post it when it is all done, hopefully I will not hit any more problems... :D THX a lot again :D

    So this is working perfectly, I can hardly wait to complete this project of mine, THX again a lot for the help!!! :D Here is a short test video. Now I need to figure out how to make the audio sound like that of a music box instead of a piano, but I might even leave it sounding like a piano because I like it... :P
