Control Cloner Color with Formula Effector
on Jun 25, 2014 at 3:10:43 pm

I have an object made up of cloned planes in z-space. I am using the formula effector to make each plane fade from pure black to pure white. The formula I have right now will fade the first plane from black to white and then the next plane will fade up and so on. I would like the planes to overlap so that the second plane starts to fade from black to white before the first plane is done. Here is the formula that I am currently using: clamp(0;1;(id<=t)*t-id) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

can't help with the Formula but if you don't need the formula as such try using a Shader effector with a linear falloff and animate the position of the effector to get your results

I have tried that method... it works, but the timing isn't as accurate as I would like for the way I'm trying to use the effect. Thanks.

Answered this on another forum but perhaps you check here more often:

clamp(0;1;t-id/5)

The divisor value can be increased from 5 for more overlap or decreased for less. When it's 1 you should have the same animation you currently have.
