Hi Cow folks,

I'm trying to make this thread twist kinda like this:

http://www.med.monash.edu.au/assets/images/nursing/twist1.jpg

I can texture the thread easily enough (its not flat like the image, just standard thread).
Im fairly experienced with C4D but I don't have heaps of time to this turnaround, so any ideas would be awesome!

Cheers,
Andrew.

Yeah, the twist deformer will do a nice job of twisting it simply and the reeper plugin works great for making normal rope but I need the animation of each thread being wound together.
The ends need to be quite far apart as though they are being weaved.

It doesn't sound that hard but I can't seem to make it work properly!
Im sure it must have been done heaps of times!

Thanks for your reply Brian.

here's a quick test - not happy with the first twisting but it might be possible to smooth it with the falloff of the twist

Oooh! That's pretty close! It was kinda what I was trying to do but much closer.

Thanks very much for that Brian, I appreciate it!

Cheers again,
Andrew.
