Sequential Fold - Like a chain
on Apr 5, 2017 at 12:08:15 am

Morning Gentleman,

In the middle of doing a few tests for a job, and I'm making the effect of a page (comp) folding over (much like page turn but actually flexible). I've made this several times before by cutting the comp into a bunch of slices, and animating their rotation. I'm just wondering if there's an expression I can use to do it with one set of keyframes on the Master (Base piece).

Been playing with "parent.transform.xRotation*-.1" on the second piece, then "parent.transform.xRotation" on the following pieces. This gets it to cascade, but they obviously twirl over at one point. Is there a way to offset the rotation of the children until the Master gets beyond 90degrees, then they make their way back to zero?

Surely I'm missing something obvious, and my description is horrible, but it's early here.
