Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Randomizing particle motion, part of Creating a Show Open in After Effects and Cinema 4D.
…In this movie we want to add some randomness to our clones so if we…just play through you can see that they're following this spline rather uniformly.…And we want to spread out their movement.…So we need to use some effectors to do that.…If we select the clone or primitives and choose mograph > effector > random.…And the random effect here is created.…And we'll just move it down here, to the bottom of our stack.…
So, if we, rewind the play head, we can see the effect of the random vector.…And it's moving, it's spreading out our clones in, the…X, Y, and Z coordinates, so if we want to…make some changes to that, we can do so by,…either scrubbing along here, or typing in event value manually.…So I'm going to type in a 120, and maybe 100 on the set.…So as I do so, you'll notice that we're changing our logo, and the reason for that…is because we are, we have an inheritance effector,…which is being driven by the cloner primitives object.…
Any changes we make to the cloner primitive,…will effect our logo due to the inheritance effector.…
