Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling multiple objects with a single slider, part of CINEMA 4D Essentials 8: Character Rigging and Xpresso.
In the previous movie, we created user data that contained a slider that controlled…the Offset function of the spline wrap object here on our scene.…What we're going to do in this movie is to duplicate these objects and show…how to create a single slider and show how to use that single slider to…control multiple objects.…This is the scene file as we left off in the previous movie, and I've got a…Slider's Null Object here, and there's a User Data field on here with the slider…on it that is animated from 0 to 100 percent.…
So what we want to be able to do is to duplicate the relationship of the matrix…object in the spheres on the spline, but leave the big sphere alone.…We want to have just one big sphere and multiple copies of these objects…traveling through it.…You'll see why in just a moment.…Before we do that though there's a very important thing we have to fix on the…XPresso tag for this spline wrap.…When we used Set Driven Keys to create the relationship in the previous movie,…we told it to do an absolute reference, but it only does an absolute reference…
