Mograph tags issue?
on Oct 12, 2011 at 3:24:49 am

Hey guys,

Not sure why but my Mograph tags will not work. I was playing around just trying to test the Tags, something like this:







No go. Tags when added, do nothing.


Running 4D R11.5 on an iMac Mac OSX 10.6.8.

Can you be more specific? Which tags? Trying to do what?

Sorry, forgot you can't post links to youtube.

I added a cube primitive to a cloner object

Made the cloner object editable, and added Mograph rigid body tags to each cube. Added a floor, mograph rigid body tag, as well.

I intended to test the dynamics engine, to see how the cubes would react, but nothing happened when I added the tags to the cloned objects, and moved along the timeline. I tried quitting and re-opening 4d, restarting the computer, changing my scene..etc. No go. Everything else seems to work fine, no issues.

Am I missing a step, I am kinda green in 4D? But online tutorials (r11.5) say it should work.

I never had 11.5 but I believe you had to have dynamics happen inside a mograph cloner or a fracture object. I don't know if that's true for colliders as well. Since you made your cloner editable it isn't a cloner anymore so that should break it. Others will know for sure.

Right, in 11.5 dynamic objects have to be either clones or children of a fracture object. Colliders can be anything.
