The Cloner Object, Our New Best Friend

Take a look at the cloner object in each of its four different forms; examine the basic parameters and the way the cloner object creates its clones. The cloner object is one of the primary tools utilized in the Mograph module and can be integrated with every other tool within the module. Understanding its basic functions is crucial to working with and understanding the others.

 

Intro to Effectors

Take a broad look at each of the different effectors. Effectors are used to control and animate the position, scale and rotation parameters and can be used to control any object with an effectors tab (the majority of the Mograph objects). Their ability to control more than one object (multiple cloner objects for example) allows for extremely powerful and complex animation with very little set up.

 

Intro to Modynamics

A favorite aspect of the Mograph 2 module, Modynamics allows for complex rigid-body dynamic simulations that can be set-up instantly and adjusted infinitely. Modynamics can simulate from dominoes falling to glass shattering with unparalleled ease and speed. A breakdown of the basic setup and a couple of examples will get you on your way to creating phenomenal dynamics.

 

The Other Objects

Learn more about other objects including the Matrix, Text, Fracture, and Instance Objects. Explore the differences and similarities of the Matrix and Cloner objects as well as how to use them in tandem. Mograph’s Text Object is an incredibly powerful way to generate text which the spline text tool simply cannot contend with. The Fracture Object allows for animated (or dynamic) deconstruction and separation of polygonal objects and the instance objects is great for creating trails of objects.

 

Mograph’s Spline Tools

The spline tools offered by Mograph are examined briefly here with a basic overview of their creation and a couple of ideas for using them. They are extremely useful for creating splines from motion (creating spline trails from each vertex of a moving object for instance) or for generating organic and repetitive splines that can be cloned and even effected by forces or dynamics.

 

Mograph’s Deformation Tools

The deformation objects allow for extremely powerful deformations of any object. From the displace deformer, which creates visible (in the viewport) deformations based on shader channels to the spline wrap, which can align or stretch objects along a spline. These tools create very easy shortcuts to problems that would have needed to involve much more complex solutions otherwise.

For such a reputable training site, that's a pretty poorly proofed post.

 

Not sure why its not displaying correctly, the release has been proofed several times before submission. Please visit www.cmivfx.com for the full post and screen shots of the video. Apparently when you mix Microsoft with real applications this is what you get at times. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Since there's a few new members around lately, let me clarify that Maxon's Mograph module is not affiliated with this website and we had the name first (I like to think of it as an homage to some rant about David Farmer).

You know, you could at least have the decency to post a sample video....

Looks interesting on first glance, but after reading the description, what info is here that I can't find with a little searching online? Are there some "secrets?" I see the words "broad look." Is there some really good in-depth stuff that I can't find in Mylenium's tutorials? Show us some video - tantalize us!
