Cloner Grid array with nothing in center. Is this possible?
on May 4, 2019 at 9:07:22 pm

Hello all, I'm new to C4D so i dunno if this is basic and i'm just overlooking something.

I've got a simple object inside a cloner set to a grid array. It's creating an odd number of clones in all three axes so i essentially have a big cube made up of all my objects. Eventually, i'll animate the Per-step property to make this grid expand and the objects will move away from each other.

The problem though is i'd like to put a camera in the center.
Of course, the center is currently occupied by one of the cloner objects. Is there a simple way to setup the cloner to make a grid without the center that i'm not seeing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much for your help.

And here's a new Pixel Lab tutorial and link for a Take Control Effector that can be used for this and other similar issues:

And here's some more from that same developer. The last one on this page, the delete by index effector, will do exactly what you wanted in the simplest manner. Just add it to a cloner's effectors list and enter the index of the clone you want to delete. Click on "Cinema 4D" in the categories list on the right of this page for a list of all of his presets.
