Way back when, Per-Anders was kind enough to provide a very useful COFFEE - “clone info hierarchy”
It provided a simple way to represent all of your clones as nulls.
I have hundreds of useful xpresso files, that I can’t get working in the absence of COFFEE.
In this particular case, I’m using individual tracks of audio to drive 5 seperate cloner’s on the Y Axis.
From those coordinates, I derive a value in xpresso between 0-100.
Those values are then fed into XParticles and back into Mograph, to drive certain parameters.
It’s an effective workflow, that I can’t recreate.
Sadly without this old and simple tool. I can’t find a meaningful way in xpresso to see what that Y value is.
A cloner, or simple cube with a sound deformer, will move on the Y-Axis, but it’s positional data remains at 0.
If anybody has any simple ways to get a reading on that movement in xpresso.
Would be nice to know how you did it! I need a brief refresher on how its done.
