Changing the Plain Effector falloff to give it more of an overshoot effect
on Sep 12, 2017 at 12:55:11 pm

I'm looking for a post that can help and wondered if this is the place.



I'm scaling up some spheres in a cloner attached to the surface of a larger sphere. But instead of the scaling to be linear from 0% to 100% I'd like the falloff to have more of an 'overshoot' effect so each sphere goes say 0% to 100% then 75% at the end.

I thought I might be able to do this by adding a spline curve but it doesn't seem to be giving me the effect I want as the spheres don;t all start at 0% scale.



Can anyone help please?

Without seeing the whole project I'm just guessing at how you set it up, but I think that you just need to drag the initial spline value down to zero.



Here's one way to set up what I think you're trying to do:

I think I see where I was going wrong now.

You had your sphere start at 0.01cm radius and used the Plain effector to scale it up 500%.
I did the opposite and had my sphere start at 2cm with the Plain Effector scaling it down -100% which probably why I wasn't getting my falloff working the way that I wanted it to.

Here's a file if it's worth seeing.

Many thanks for the response Jim, you've been a big help :)

Yes, I kind of cheated by starting very small, but it was the only way I could get the overshoot you were looking for. A C4D expert, which I'm not, could probably come up with a better way. I'm glad it helped.
