How to achive a similar look
on Jul 31, 2018 at 7:46:08 pm

Hi,
I am trying to figure out a way to create a similar effect like the image below.

I tried using a collision deformer but I couldn't get quite right.
Any ideas? I want to reveal some text through a plane object.

Thank you!

If you need to deform with a texture you can, but you will need a crazy level of subD's to make it smooth and a high enough resolution map to do it.

You can also achieve this with invisible letters and Ambient Occlusion and no deforming - just have them cast a shadow on the plane as they scale up or rise up (towards camera).

If you have Octane, its deformation routine can generate a billion more subdivisions economically than C4D's native engine can.

If you use the dynamics engine you will probably see subtle little flickers even at a very high subD level.
