Morphing complex objects/cloners

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there. I’m still learning C4D so please bare with me…

To keep it as simple as I can explain it, I have a Subdivision Surface (a gummy worm that I purchased from Turbosquid) that i’m trying to morph into a Cloner of cubes. On the Cloner i have a Volume Modifier that is referencing a Sweep object that I built to be the same shape as the gummy worm.

I’ve seen several tutorials on morphing simple objects using inheritance but I can’t quite figure out how to get this to work with these two objects. If I left anything unclear let me know and I’ll try my best to fill in the gaps. The zip file of the project is still to big for me to upload to here but I'd be happy to share with anyone that feels like they could help! I've also attached a few screen grabs showing both versions of the gummy worm.imageproxy.php?img=&key=64dc4b4c9c7ad99b

Thanks in advance!

You can't morph a single object into a cloner of cubes. The cubes are all separate objects so that couldn't work.

But you can clone into the volume of the worm if that helps in some way...

    Can you explain a little further?

    Sure. You can clone a group of objects directly onto or inside an object as shown below...

    One on the left is cloned onto every vertex, and on the right cloned into the volume of the 'worm' shape. 

    Once you have this sort of setup it is relatively trivial to animate between this arrangement of clones, and any other. See this tutorial here.

     

     

    Obviously you are using the worm instead of text, and we don't know what your other morph shape is, but other than that, it should be all you need right ?
