Hi everyone

I have a problem using the data node inside xpresso,

I'm using the tag "data node" to take the position of one clone and making it follow by a null object. But the null doesn't match very well the position of the clone, there's like a position delay.

How can i solve this problem?

Thankyou all

the xpresso needs to happen after the clone's move. I'll assume that this is a Dynamics move, if that is so, you'll have to set the Priority in the Xpresso tag to Generators 400 (or above) so the xpresso move happens after the dynamics move (in any one frame) so the null will keep up with the clone and not be a frame behind.

Hi Brian and thankyou for your help

I tried to do what you told me, but there's still a delay,
there is no dynamics, the clones are moving along a spline using a spline effector for mograph

how are they moving along the spline? Using Offset? If that's the case the Priority in the Xpresso tag would only have to be Generators 0 or higher. So it should be working. What version of C4D are you using?

I solve the problem! I change to generator 0 on the null object that should follow the clone, and i also change to generator 499 to the "PSR" tag of the object that should then follow the null starting from a specific frame.

Thankyou very much Brian!! Now everything works fine! ;)
