How to add jiggle to a bend deformer?

Recommended Posts

Hello.  I have cube with a bend deformer as a child, how would I add some secondary motion to the bend deformer? 

 

I've tried stacking a jiggle deformer too but that doesn't seem to be working.  I'm a new C4D user but coming from AE and using Element3D quite a bit I can apply a decay expression to pretty much any keyable attribute.  Is there something similar in C4D?  I would like to avoid manually keyframing decay/overshoot/bounce every time.  Maybe XPresso is the solution but I'm not too sure.  Thanks for any help.

Hi,
XPresso is right. You can use Noise Node to drive Bend strength. Also, you can control amount of it via Range Mapper or Math nodes..

  • Thanks!  I was able to set up the XPresso map you have in your screenshot and got some interesting results.  I got the best result by using the 'Point Cahce' tag once my bend deformer was how I wanted then I dropped in a 'Jiggle' deformer which gave it some nice settling animation.
