  1. So here's the over-arching goal: I am working on a burn effect reveal -- a roughened edge mask reveal across a surface. Plenty of examples out there of how to do this using an animated gradient, but -- difference being that all of the examples are created with a simple or flat object, but my object is rather complex and organic. -- which creates either lots of stretching or hard-lined edges with any kind of projection in UVW space. How can I reference XYZ space for noise? Is this possible? I'm just kind of blanking on how I can get a nice burn edge/reveal using world-space XYZ coordinates instead of UVW projection. Thanks in advance for any insight!
  2. I'm trying to come up with a much faster solution to the atom array, using spline/hair. I would like to be able to use ALL edges as splines -- interactively. I hope to be able to continue to animate using polygons/mesh, but -- at the top of my stack, convert all edges to spline. This of course works for a static object -- using the function 'edges to spline' but, it doesn't allow me to maintain interactivity/edit-ability and animation. Once I have that spline, I'll just be rendering it as an outline. Using the dirt shader would be GREAT but it doesn't seem to want to respond to non-connected edges. (my object is under a polyfx modifier, each polygon is entirely independent and broken apart. ) Currently I'm using the cloner on edges hack -- cloning a single polygon (long and thin) onto each edge. Works fine, but it's rather slow. Render time shot up like crazy. This spline solution SEEMS like it should be much faster. I feel like if someone made a plugin that's like the advanced atom array -- but converts everything underneath to a spline... they'd make a killing. thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Advanced Quadruped Rig - Feet Flipping

    Okay, figured it all out -- you CAN move the up vectors without collapsing the character object. You must be in animate mode, and they are represented by dots which are visible in the viewport without needing to scroll through the hierarchy in the object manager

    Advanced Quadruped Rig - Feet Flipping

    It appears that the 'up vector' for each of the lower 3 foot bones is too close to the front of the leg, and easily passes through. But, there seems to be no way to change their location/position without collapsing the character object.
  5. Having trouble with the advanced quadruped rig - even at all default positions. Once you start to move the feet out of range, they roll to the side. Doesn't seem to happen on the non-advanced quadruped rig. Anyone know what the issue is here? This doesn't seem like it's supposed to be happening... but is happening on both R18 and R19. I appreciate any assistance or input on this! Screen recording of what is happening - here
