Sweep second hand XPresso

Recommended Posts

I was asked by a member for XPresso ideas to drive a clock sweep second hand, so I've zipped up a few scenes that might interest anyone learning XPresso.


I used modulo to get the second pulse, a monoflop as a counter and delay effector for a small overshoot and wobble on the hand.


In one file there's a ticking sound, but you can't really export sound easily in C4D, so my method is to record the sound in real time in Cinema using Audacity set to 'what you hear', and add it in After Effects. In the past when I've used the Audacity method on big scenes, the sound track can end up longer than the animation, but AE has tools for shrinking tracks.


In this clip I exaggerated the hand overshoot to show the effect (has sound) -



it's not rocket science, but might help XPresso beginners
