A mate was showing me Blender today (which seems a cool tool) and it has a great array tool which allows you to duplicate and control the offset of duplicates interactively. I have seen similar tools in older versions of C4D. I was wondering if anyone knew of a similar tool or plugin for maya that would help create that interactive control of multiple duplicates effect?
I haven't seen any kind of Maya equivalent to Jenna/C4D's mograph but you can instance geometry to particles then apply forces to that. Alias/Autodesk doesn't seem to give much love to the motion graphics market like C4D does, I thought that was going to change when they introduced the Toon module but as you can see... it hasn't.
