Step Basic Coord. Effector Parameter Deformer Falloff
Note also the Step Field
, which works similarly within the Field functionality.
The Step Effector works like this: Each defined transformation is applied to the last clone, and the transformation of the clones in between (i.e. clone 0 to the last clone) is interpolated.
The Step Effector with S.Y set to 10; the last clone is 10 times larger in the Y-direction than the first clone.
The following applies to the numbering of clones:
- Clone mode (Grid): When looking at the grid in the Z-direction: The first clone is at the bottom left. The sequence is basically as follows: 1st row at bottom front from left to right, 2nd row at bottom front from left to right, etc., then from front to rear.
- Polygon objects / splines: If cloning takes place on polygonal objects or splines, the first clone is always the one that is on the first object point or spline point.
- Particles: The first clone will be on the first generated particle.
- MoInstance object: The first clone is the one directly behind the animated instanced object.
