Effectors open up all kinds of possibilities for manipulating and animating clones in the Cinema 4D MoGraph system. In this video, learn how to add effectors to Cloner objects and adjust parameters and falloffs.
- [Instructor] Effectors can modify clones…in a multitude of ways.…So let's look at how we can work with effectors.…I'm going to select my cloner object,…and come over to the MoGraph menu, Effector,…and we'll just add a plane effector,…and immediately you'll see that the clones have moved up…100 units in the y-axis.…If we look at the Parameter tab, we can see…that that is what's happening.…So how did that happen?…Well, we have a cloner and we have an Effectors tab,…and the plane effector has been added to that list.…
You can enable and disable effectors from the list…just by clicking here, or you can enable and disable them…in the Object Manager.…With the cloner selected, when you create an effector…from the MoGraph menu, it will automatically be added…to the effectors list.…If we did not have the cloner selected,…it wouldn't be added to this list,…and we'd have to manually drag it in.…So the process is just to drag it in…to the Effectors field like so,…or you can come over and use this little pick session…and pick the effectors that you want to add to the list.…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
