Using R13. I'm trying to set up a lamp that has random light output. The sort of thing you'd use 'the wriggler' for in AfterEffects. Is there an equivalent in c4d or will I have to revert to xpresso?

Thanks Alan

There's not a direct equivalent to wiggler, but you can do it pretty easily with MoGraph:

* create two lights -- one at 100% and the other at 0% brightness;
* drop them both into a cloner, set to one clone and blend mode;
* assign a random effector with all parameters turned off but "modify clone" set to 100%. Set the random mode to noise or turbulence.

Example: 4982_wigglerflicker.c4d.zip

Thanks very much Adam, I did half suspect Mograph would be able to do this but I'm very low on its learning curve.

Sorry for the late post. C4d does have something sorta similar called the vibrate tag.

Thanks Sergio. I looked at this and it looks like it can be used but only with a bit of expresso converting either posn, scale or rotation to a value to control light intensity. Easier fpr me to get my head round tho' than Mograph.

Cheers Alan
