Hey!

I'm looking to re-create this effect (see linked image below) in some way, but not sure how to go about it.

You could use hair for that, or mograph.

Here's an example mograph scene that might give you some ideas: 3688_mographthing.c4d.zip

cool! yeah absolutely, i'm a total newb but this gives me so much to work on and tinker with. hopefully i can apply some image to this and get the effect i want and then later on animate and make it pop.

thanks man!

yeah i obviously have no clue how to add an image to that so the image becomes spread out on each segment, instead of each segment getting the whole image..

If you'll notice, there's a plane object in the scene I uploaded. I used that to get a visual presentation of the mapping that the shader effector would apply. So what you do is put your image in a material's color channel, place the material on the plane, if needed, set the texture mapping (planar) and scale/rotation with the texture axis tool ... and THEN drag that texture tag into the Shader Effector's Shading>Texture Tag link box.

That tells the effector to use the material and projection from the plane and apply it to the clones.
