importing in Element 3d v2 from cinema 4d a cloner object with animation

Hi to everyone!
I'm new to this forum.

Has anyone of you a solution with one thing that drives me mad.

I have a cloner object with a big cube and another cloner object as a child of it.

I want to achieve the effect that some little objects are on one surface of the big cubes and so when i rotate the cubes they rotate with it.

I want to import this setup to element 3d v2.
Thank's in advance to everyone



I attach example of what i would like to achieve



Thank's much in advance if someone of you has a solution

Two ways to get around this.

1) Convert your C4D cloner object to mesh. You may have to bake your keyframes if you have any effectors like Delay or something.

2) Export an OBJ sequence from C4D and import that into Element. I use the Riptide Pro plugin for that.

Thank's much!
You are absolutely right.
Yes usually i convert my cloner to a mesh and move the converted mesh under a fracture object to achieve the same setup with effectors.
In this case it's not possible because i have a cloner that is a child of another cloner so it's not possible to move it to a fracture object.
I tried to bake the effectors with the cloner millions of times and it never worked.
But this time it worked ,strangely for me.
I did almost the same like other times but this time it worked.
I used nitrobake.
Crazy.
Thank'smfor your repsonse

NitroMan is the shiznit. I'll have to check that one out. I'm glad it worked. Getting those keyframes to bake can be a pain in the butt sometimes, I agree.
