View Full Version : I cleaned up my download page ;-)

Hi there,

I restructured my Expression download page and uploaded some new stuff which I found on my hard disk. Just some smaller things which may be helpful or are just to play with.

New expressions:

Simply apply the XPresso tag to any object to make it rotate. Speed (in degree per second) and offset can be defined separately for all axis.

Put any number of light sources in the group and they will start to flicker like there were fluctuations in the electrics. Good for old neon signs or creepy laboratories.
LightFlicker is my secret favourite. It calculates random values and multiplies them with a sine. By using a threshold it decides if the value is high enough to switch the light on. That way, you get nice 'waves' of flickering without being too regular.

Put any number of SweepNURBS in the group and you can scale and grow them all at the same time. I once needed that for a simple TV background animation, maybe you can use it too.

Scale, rotate and move a hierarchy of objects to get tentacle-like shapes and motion. Abstract, funny, maybe useful, maybe not. I also used that for a TV job some time ago.

TP Tools
A small collection of improved standard setups for ThinkingParticles. There's Volume Friction, Planar Volume Gravity and Spherical Volume Gravity. They are extensions to the TP Presets included in Cinema4D's object library. From time to time, I'll add more of them because they're just easy to use.

Hope you like some of it.

The expression "AlignToSplineBlender" is able to align any object to two splines at the same time and blend between them.
