Effecting Light objects via Sound Effector
on Jun 21, 2011 at 10:32:39 pm

Hello Again,

Is there some way to have a sound effector dim light objects on and off.

I'm using a cloner object to duplicate many light bulbs on strands and want to show ripples of light "flowing" through.

Thanks again for being such a wonderful resource.

-A-

One way you could do this is by having x amount of lights in a cloner with different intensity values from 0 to 100. Then set the mode to sort and add in the sound effector set it to modify clones. Then it will change the intensity based on the sound via the different lights.

You could use this one light cloner in another cloner and offset the values to get a ripple.

I'm sure there is a better way then this but I'm not sure how. I looked into the sound node and the sound effector node in Xpresso but there doesn't seem to be a way to output the value for the sound.

Hope this helps somewhat or sparks an idea

Greg

You also can check out this tread on Xpresso for blinking lights.

Yet again, I am so grateful for this forum. I've been pulling my hair out. Thank you - great fix.
One other question: When I hit the "include Sound" in my render settings then hit "Render to picture viewer" it says "Unable to write file". When I then "make preview" and save said preview as a QT movie, the sound is not included.
Can you help with that?

There is a tutorial on my site:

Hope it helps.
