Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Cloner object, part of CINEMA 4D Essentials 7: MoGraph Modeling and Animation.
At the heart of the MoGraph Module is something called the Cloner object.…The Cloner object is a Generator Object that creates copies of just about…anything you place under it.…I've got a simple stadium section here and this is the seating module from the…stadium in the MoGraph example movie.…This was created using simple polygon modeling tools based on an Extrude NURB.…The first thing I did was to create the stadium section, the profile of the…section using the Extrude NURB Object and a Spline. I'll hide that.…And you can see that if I turn that off, that's just a simple spline.…
I then copied it and made it editable, and then extruded that outward to get the Stadium seats.…I then used a Selection Tag to limit the appearance of the crowd texture on the…front faces of those seating sections.…Then what I did was, to give the illusion of tapering in,…I used a Free Form Deformer Object, and that's a special type of deformer…that when you go into Point mode allows you to grab the points on it and move them around.…
