Offsetting cloned formula effectors

Recommended Posts

Hi,

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,

Thanks!

  • Unfortunately not as the cloned Formula effector is not driven by any keyframes.

    Bit above my pay grade, my only thoughts would be to set up two slightly different clones and blend them in a cloner , but i saw this thread from Dr Sassi, Im only on R18 so not sure whats going on, especially with the formulas

    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.
