SuperTracer Beta Plugin.

First Beta of SuperTracer is available now for testing and playing.
I have made this plugin today for testing some of C4D R12/13 SDK possibilities.

SuperTracer is a spline generator, that can track state of input object over time.
For now it support following modes “Chain”, “Net”, “Web”.
It can also be rendered using Hair.


This Beta is for testing only!

Thank you, but before I download and install, could you give some information and examples as to what this is? I don't all necessarily have the time to test, but if its something useful to me I will always bookmark and buy later.

Sounds nice, would like to try it out – but I guess this is for PC only?

Edit: Didn't read the Readme.txt carefully enough. Would be nice to have a Mac Version :-)

hey, this adds a few possibilities i haven't seen a Tracer do yet.
It's actually 2 separate Tracers that can connect to each other.

definitely worth exploring.
( that Clear Every Frame Parameter is also nice ).

Nice, thank you Remo!

A nice addition could be that the Tracer behaves like the Ghosting
function in the Display tag, so one can choose how much frames
before and after the objects movement the spline is drawn…

New SuperTracer version.

The new New SuperTracer version is available for testing.

Here are the most significant changes:

Added new "Net" mode, still not complete.
Added "History Depth" just like MoInstance.
Added "Start Frame" and "End Frame" limits.

One never knows what each day is going to bring. The important thing is to be open and ready for it.

Not seeing any plugin on OS X R13. Also no example files in the download.
Looks neat though. If it works


EDIT: i see the example files now, but the plugin still isn't found.
