From T-shirt to XPresso

Recommended Posts

I was watching Big Bang Theory on TV, and one of the guys had a T-shirt that looked a bit like a reflected audio volume display -




probably is something else, but I thought I'd have a stab at replicating it in C4D.


As per my usual methodology, I tried using mograph but couldn't get it to work - so I made the cloner editable. There's 400 cubes and frame count is set to modulo 400, referencing the objects sequentially in a sweep. Sound effector gives the Y size - for some reason it needed a field to get an output. Previous sweep gets overwritten (a bit like hospital machines). I chose a soundtrack that has some suitable guitar 'ching' to give something to look at - most pop is highly compressed.


It's not rocket science, but might interest someone learning XPresso.
