paper effect without pages crossing each other
on Feb 10, 2014 at 4:55:36 pm

Hello,

I have created an animation based on this tutorial http://www.cgmotionbox.com/2012/02/cinema-4d-paper-turning-effect-tutorial/

after some complex setup, I baked the animation.

Now i want to create several pages with different materials, however when they are animated, the pages go trough each other.

I tried with dynamics and so on , but no luck so far.

Any idea?

I attach here the file: http://f1.creativecow.net/7117/paperfoldanimation

Many thanks

the PLA animation of the spline drops first (for the middle range of points) so the page drops through the pages beneath. You'd have to change the position of those points.

Many thanks Brian,

I was wondering if is possible adding some physics to a PLA animation, so for example the pages would have some rigid/soft body behavior so when the pages touches they dont cross each other.

any idea?

Many thanks for your help

no, not the way you want. If you put a rigid/soft body tag on an object with keyframes it ignores the keyframes - well, you can listen to keyframes if Dynamic is Off in the Dynamics tab and have physics if Dynamic is On with Transition Time setting the amount of time it takes to move from one state to the other but they don't actually 'mix' like you are hoping.
If you are following the spline and joints tutorial I would just pull the goal outward so the middle can't drop or change the method entirely since there many ways to do the page flip

I see,

I have tried as you said, and yes you were totally right, getting the expected result will be tough to get it.

I will give a go changing the points.

Many thanks!
