Caps on a tracer

Hi there,

I’ve been following EJ at Eye Desyn on https://vimeo.com/108335058 and have successfully morphed this…



Into…



I want to build an animated contour map along the lines of…



I think I’ve got everything sorted except I can’t put a cap on the tracer when extruded, it’ll extrude as expected but no cap. Does anyone have any ideas?


Cheers

Stephen

try checking Close Spline in the Tracer - the extrude won't add a cap on an open spline.

Cheers Brian,

I tried that, sadly nothing doing. A pity, everything else is working just fine except this caps issue.

what's the tracer's source, can you post the file?

Hi Brian,

Yes, I'd be delighted to. Here's the link...

I've animated the inheritance effector across the tracer. I need to look rather harder at the shape of the contour and how it unfolds from the circle but if you can spot where I'm going wrong with the caps, then I can do that and build a final, stacked topography.

Many thanks

Stephen

I checked Close Spline in the Tracer and it worked

Hi Brian,

Thank you, I'm having a 'I'm feeling dumb moment'. On my original document I had several contours and I was closing the wrong spline. I need more sleep!

Cheers

Stephen
