Animated cutting object from a box model

Recommended Posts


I want to do animation with cutting out objects from a box model.
Here is a video where you can see what I want to do (1:41):



Is there any way to animate appear of cutting in C4D?

There'll be a number of ways to approach this. I'd be tempted to fake it.


This would involve making a flat surfaced model that included the whole of the cut track, and then making a series of objects coplanar with that surface that you could keyframe about, revealing parts of the track as your cutting model passes over it.


As for how you make that cut track, I'd do it with poly modelling, or with the collision deformer and splines (if you have that in R13) or even a horrible boole if your proper modelling isn't up to it...
