Other than Bend deformer?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to ask if there was another way to bend the object other than bend deformer. I am having a problem where i want a rectangle that is curled up to uncurl in segments rather than a whole. Does anyone have any advice? Like if a rolled up piece of paper starts to uncurl soon as it gets out the tube.

i was recently faced with a similar situation and found the following links that proved to be very beneficial in setting up the project. on maxon's page there used to be a news story with some rolling paper news called "Tearing Things Up with Cinema 4D". it's no longer there but it is stilled cached (minus images) with google but the images were the best part because it showed some of the c4d set up that robert hranitzky did for genarts. anyway, long story short, if you DO want to use the bend deformer you could and still achieve the rolled paper look.

i just found the pics in google image search (get them before they're gone forever):

this tut might give you some more insight on how to set up the deformer. basically if you want a tube and for it to unrolljust reverse the start and end of the deformer. there's also source files to download so you dont really have to do any/much leg work:

I found something really cool out for a solution for me. I had to play with one setting in Mesh Deformer. So in a way i used two bend deformers on one object :D
