Offsetting cloned formula effectors


Recommended Posts


I have a set up where I am cloning geometry effected by a formula effector.

Is there any way of 'offsetting' the animation of the clones? The animation is not driven by keyframes so the usual methods don't seem to work.

Any ideas would be great,

You can do it in the formula itself by adding the clone ID ("id") to the project time ("t") in your formula. Alternatively you can bake the animation into keyframes and use the time offset. If you want to step through your clones the examples of Dr. Sassi are the way to go.
