Basic Coord. Effector Parameter Deformer Falloff


Strength [-∞..+∞%]

Use this setting to adjust the overall strength of the effect. Values of less than 0% and greater than 100% can be entered.


At left a Step Effector without a selection, at right with a selection.

A MoGraph Selection or MoGraph Weightmap tag can be dragged into this field or placed automatically by selecting a Cloner Object and an existing MoGraph selection/weighting, and creating an Effector.

The Effector will then work as follows, depending on the tag’s settings:


Maximum [-∞..+∞%]

Use these settings to increase or decrease internal range values.

Minimum [-∞..+∞%]

Use these sliders to adjust the Effector’s range of influence. Values less than 0% or greater than 100% can be defined.

Let’s assume you have entered the following formula: t*px. If Minimum and Maximum were also set to 0% and 100%, respectively, extreme values would quickly be reached. It would, therefore, be advisable to set Maximum to 1% (or even much smaller, depending on your scene or the desired result).


The following variables can be used when writing a formula:

Varying t adjusts the animation speed, varying f varies the spatial frequency.
