View Full Version : Trailing Objects

Iím looking for anything (plug-in or other) that automatically creates clones of an object along a motion path with multiple levels of control for both space and time.

You could try using fxlinker and particles to do this.

You may try a nodal setup in the Motion node editor,

first add a Null moving and aligned along a path,

in the Motion node editor of the object,
add the Motion Info from DPKit, select the Null,
a Random Scalar node for varying Time input,
then add a Random Vector node to the Position ouput
as a position offset.
You may also use the Rotation output
for aligning the object along the path.

Or use an Instancer with a similar setup,
for a constant offset, random nodes sould be tied to the ID of the clones or instances,
using the Seed input.
