Hi,

I need some help determining a good approach to create an extruded line up of cut-out people that hangs like paper. Overall my results are sloppy/undesirable and doesn't feel like it is unfolding.

Here is how i am doing it so far:
1. create multiple cut-outs and individually rotate/scale/position them to unfold

2. since each shape is different (man/woman/child), tweak PLA over a couple frames so when the "man" shape is revealed from behind the woman shape they have a similar outline

Questions:

1. Is there a better approach the unfolding (so it actually unfolds)?

2. How do i build this knowing i need to add softbody or cloth dynamics so it feels like it is hanging/unfolding naturally? (Its not my first time using cloth/soft body)

Thanks for your help.

the paper is folded as an accordian fold in these things so it should unfold that way. Here's a couple tries at it. 4967_cutouttrial.c4d.zip

This is great Brian, thanks a lot. The parenting of each level makes a lot of sense...should have thought of that.

Now that i've done that and have attached to a splinewrap, the accordion undesirably fluctuates from the spline as it unfolds.

Do you have any suggestions on how to seat it against the spline so it is stabilized?

Thanks again :)

in the SplineWrap/Object tab

- delete the animation track for the Offset, set Offset to 50%
- down in the Spline area check Fix Bounding Box
