Push apart effect on Cloner

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Not  sure if I'm in the right board hopefully I am.  I'm trying to achieve something like a push apart effect on a cloner object.

The best way to show you what I mean is from this picture. Please see red circle.

I'm modelling a notebook that has a built in bookmark (if thats what they call it). Initially the pages were built from cloners. 

What I'm trying to do is replicate that look. I tried using push apart effector with with fall off placed in between pages but it didnt seemed to work. Is there a way around it using cloners? cause later on I'll animate the flipping pages together with the bookmark. Is there a neat way to do it? I hope someone has an idea how to pull it off.

Thank you!

Yep - you picked the perfect category for this question 🙂

I'd put all the pages that need to be above the bookmark in a group Null with an FFD deformer, and then use that to warp them around the bookmark. Make sure the pages have enough segmentation to deform properly. This sort of thing...
