Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the MoGraph Selection tool, part of CINEMA 4D Essentials 7: MoGraph Modeling and Animation.
The power of MoGraph comes from the Cloner object and combining it with Effectors.…But what happens when you want to limit how an Effector is applied to a Cloner?…That's where the MoGraph Selection tool comes in.…I'm going to make a very simple arrangement of clones here.…Let's add a cube to the scene.…The cube is a little bit big, so I'll hit T on the keyboard to get the Scale…tool, and let's just scale it down.…That's pretty good right about there.…There's no right or wrong answer in this one and we just want to create a smaller cube.…And let's go into the MoGraph menu and add a Cloner object.…
So let's create a clone by dragging the cube onto the Cloner object, and let's go…to the Object Properties on the Cloner,…and change the count from 3 to, say, 10.…And then let's change the amount to about 108 or so.…I want to be able to see all the clones that I've created.…If you hit H on the keyboard, that will frame up the scene.…Now that I can see everything, let's modify those clones.…Let's go to the MoGraph menu, and under the Effectors,…
