  1. Sorry base80, not sure what you're saying here.
  2. Really comprehensive solution Docphibs. Its another solution and probably the best one... forgot about the connect object!
  3. Hi, Yeah the drawings don't really explain it... I need the splines to 'wrap' up and around the foot... making them 'mask' on with a boolean isn't an option I'm afraid. I can hide the reveal of the actually leg jus not the formation of the whole foot...
  4. Hi there, The first image shows a foot pressing into cloned polygon strips using the collision deformer. It's working fine, but because of the amount of polygons needed to get the detail in the foot shape it is making moving round the scene really slow. I know I can use a flat plane and an image on it and deform that, but I need this to be made of splines because of the way the animation progresses... I was wondering if this could be done using splines and hair as the render rather than using polygons. I've tried cloning a load of splines with hair material on them but the spline dynamics and hair collider tag only work with an individual splines it seems.... I've tried the hair object and attached hairs to strips but I need the hairs to be anchored at both ends. Is this possible? I'm not massively familiar with the hair system to be honest. The 2 drawings show what needs to happen after the deformation. The white lines need to wrap round the foot completely and up the leg... so this requires more than a footprint... I know that some trickery can be used here - such as the splines for the leg form out of know where... thats fine but the foot will need more thought. I was thinking of morphing from an initial spline state through a few intermediate states to the final foot shape using the pose morph tag. However because of the amount of splines needed this is going to be a really tough task! Any suggestions on an alternative solutions to this? Cheers, Luke
  5. waaaait...problem! If I add a sweep nurb to the spline, the shader effector deforms the mesh... how can this be worked around?
  6. Ok the obvious solution that somehow escaped me and a few others it wold seem is CLONE THE SPLINE AND USE A SHDER EFFECTOR WITH A TEXTURE TAG.... Kicking myself right now!!
  7. Also the Uber Tracer is a great solution as you just limit the distance which prevents that extra unwanted lines from appearing.
  8. Thanks jm. Its certainly a workable solution... if I need hundreds of splines though, not so practical!
  9. I knew there was something I'd forgotten to say I do not want. Yeah I do no want this to be made using a texture. I need the splines for other things later on. Cheers anyway.
  10. Hi there, I'm trying to get a vast grid of clones to connect together with splines horizontally using the tracer object. The 2nd image is how I want the clones to be manipulated and the splines to react. What I don't want is for the spline to continue from one end of the row to the next as show below. Note: I need this grid of clones to be effected by a single shader, so this setup cannot operate as separate lines, cloned into a grid. Note: I do no want this to be made using a texture on geometry. It needs to be splines. What's the answer here please guys? Cheers, Luke.
  11. Feeling like I have a hell of lot to offer....
