Deforming a plane(waves).

I really need to discover if its possiblke to make real bumb deformations or waves in a plane object that can be animated to simulate water waves. please if anyone knows a great way to do this let me know. please!

Jenna2 ( includes the Nickl Plugin which can do this. There was a free version of Nickl available--perhaps check the plugin cafe.

Christopher Mills had this site up a few years back--still looks active:

Also there is the plugin "Add the sea"--I think its on a German site called Motion Gimmick.

Otherwise, the flag deformer or just sla materials in the deformation channel will do it--with a little bit of work.

Do the others work with C$D scenes. ill see if flag actually deforms the plane.Suppose i had two planes that where deformed and i wanted to simulate waves by making them alternate on the "y" axis(one up the one down), how would i tell C4D to do this throughout say a 400 frame anim? No need to answer if too strNGE.tHANKS.I WILL STILL APPRECIATE FURTHER SUGGESTIONS ON THIS TOPIC.PEACE.

You can't. Cinema 4D is limited to animations of 100 frames. For the moment, you'll have to render 4 separate 100-frame animations and combine them in something like Shake.

Hopefully this limitation will be dealt with in R9.

at least cinema has those 100 frames now! do you remember the 1-frame-each-scene-setup in V5?

thorns got a point, for one of the ones whose made such a ruckus about lack of docs and support, he hasn't looked in that manual at all, top three posts are all his and all answerable in the MANUAL, I might also add without looking at addendums either.

i beg to differ

For example one person was kind enough to suggest a plugin that is not listed in the manual for making it alright with you if one asks questions.or do you need to be hostile/
