View Full Version : What is the best way to fold a map?

01-25-2010, 06:22 PM
Hey there-
I'm still a novice with c4d. I've found different methods for folding a map using cluster and bones but all I've been able to find are the downloadable files.

I created a plane with 2 vertical divisions and 1 horizontal division. What I'd like to do is have the map unfold along the 1 horizontal and along the 2 vertical. Someone posted a c4d file that had clusters built into it, but I'm not able to figure out how to recreate it within my file.


Can anyone help me out by giving me step by step instructions? It would be very much appreciated.

You can use joints or bones. It's the best way to fold sheet.

Thanks so much. I'll keep working on that way of doing it. Your paper animations are great.
