The plugin is composed by 2 tags plugin:
Vertex Map Animator Vertex Map Life
All these tags workflow is similar: they need a vertex map tag to animated. This vertex map will be used by vertex map shader within material channels.
Vertex Map Animator:
This plugin can interpolate two or more vertex map thanks to a simple animatable property, it will write the transition on the associated vertex map
Vertex Map Life:
This plugin simulates the grow or death of a organic life on to a polygon. Starting from a base vertex map, frame by frame the plugin will invade the whole polygon.
This is a simulation and cannot be baked so DO NOT jump forward and backward on the timeline, if you need to see the animation state at a certain frame use only Play and Stop animation button.
The plugin works with all editions of Cinema 4D R13/14 (Prime, Broadcast, Visualize, Studio) and with all cinema 4D compatible engine renderers (V-Ray etc). More info: http://www.c4dzone.com/en/blog/videoblog-1/vertex-map-animator-plugin-272.htm
