  1. Here is a bit more elaborate setup - splinewrap prototype. Generator takes a mesh as input and in link deforming spline can be loaded. Some basic controls are present Graph The setup can be expanded to reflect current splinewrap deformer and expand on it 67_Splinewrap.c4d
  2. Here is an example of hot make a fish school, or flocking effect. This is pure nodes setup. Control the effect through controls on grid and random node 57_Fisch_School.c4d
  3. I see. Check the geometry property set node, it generates points (or other geo attributes) by using incoming iteration or array. You can use point data from spline itself or any custom data as input.
  4. When you say attribute you are referring to some Houdini construct which I am not acquainted with. In nodes, you can generate lines by using index and topological nodes. Check line topology get/set nodes too. I presume this is what you are after? connect.c4d
  5. Yes, you would need to create a custom array of points based on any condition you want then use those points to create spline segments. There is spline assembler and other spline related nodes that can help you with that

    Hide Clones Effector

    Use filter op. Here is the simplest case where there is no falloff involved
  7. Here is a aim constraint prototype. Simple but can be turned into full blown setup following the same principle 🙂 Target is loaded in Generator Graph is simple 21_Aim_Constraint.c4d
  8. Here is a pure nodes "trailing" setup. Clones will trail (as with MoInstance) the animated value and one can change the count. Magic happens inside memory node On the main level things are quite simple This setup can be expanded to completely make MoInstance parity plus some more! 75_Trailing.c4d
  9. Here is a bit more elaborate setup, in this case purely nodes based. Essentially it is an inheritance effector where clones reach transformation of target object with temporal offset. Sounds complicated but effect is quite known. Following controls are provided You can choose what is active (what transforms), duration and gap. The main part of the setup is located in inheritance group To use, simply set final transformation with null object Press play and clones will transform from original state defined by distribution to new transformed state. You can easily swap the distribution. The challenge would be to make this a capsule 🙂 112_Inheritance.c4d
  10. Here is an example on geometry modifier usage. Here we build a simple smoothing deformer 🙂 Setup uses looping in form of loop carried value node which accumulates results 10x10x10 segment cube smoothed Modifier has iterations and strength parameters It is used as any other modifier in OM Main graph is quite simple. Important part is range node which drives the looping Loop carried value internals are heart of the setup This setup can be expanded and improved. You can build your own deformers! 79_Smooth_Points_Deformer.c4d
  11. Here is a setup that goes around refresh issue, hope it helps 21_Aim_Constraint.c4d
  12. For each input you can define how it behaves by using resource editor. Right click on input column and open it from context menu. This means that from Object port system will take children of generator into account and access data from them
  13. There is an refresh issue. Additionally in the classic import node you have to change to local or global transforms. If you then move the null and press "A" on your keyboard it will force viewport refresh. If you animate the null it will work (with Time dependent enabled in classic op node)
  14. Here is an example of simple particle emitter : ) It is a simple generator as shown in OM With some basic controls in attribute manager such as emitter size,birthrate count and speed Graph is simple for what is realized Viewport result In current form it is actually possible to build particle systems 165_Simple_Emitter.c4d
  15. The whole point of nodes/capsules and new core is performance oriented, not sure why you reached the conclusion that not answering means no...
  16. Here is a spline projection proto 🙂 Generator takes spline as input And you load a target into link slot Graph is quite simple It can be relatively easily expanded and made more robust 146_Project_Spline_capsule.c4d
  17. You can send a bugreport and mark it as confidential. That way it is ensured that your scene is handled solely by Maxon specialists for purpose of debugging and profiling.
  18. Can you attach the scene? If not send a bugreport so we can check it...
  19. There is no spline chamfer node yet . Apart from making one yourself which is not easy, maybe this "cheat" can help if you are using simple geometry? chamffer.c4d
  20. Here is how to build a displacer. Obviously a reduced feature set but easily expandable since all nuts and bolts are there. In OM AM controls Graph Challenge would be to offer per axis controls 🙂 08_Displacer.c4d
  21. Have you contacted MAXON support? Hard to say without scene file and crash log

    Corner Selection

    Maybe this would be better approach. You locate a corner point and select a polygon face from it. Works on 2d planes. If you will use 3d mesh (such as cube) you will need to change comparison in the setup to accommodate for that. Hope it helps 🙂 Corner Selection_0001.c4d
  23. Here is a simple parametric Lego primitive! It appears as a generator in object manager With some controls in Attribute manager Graph is not complex at all and revolves around creating a single piece which is "cloned". There are probably more efficient ways to make this but it is late 🙂 148_Lego_Primitive.c4d

    Vertical divisons

    Without checking your scene file I can say this is not that easy. There is no simple "add point" function yet. Firstly you will have to add point(s) to existing array of points and build corresponding topology with topology get/set nodes. Will try once I grab time 🙂
  25. Point being a matrix has benefits. In example of spline it can serve nicely for orientation. Good example of point being a matrix is in distributions. Clones assigned to points will assume position, scale and orientation of the point : )
