Animated sweep ? Anyone ?
show user profile  khamski
Hey, friends!

I am hitting the wall here with my head.
It's weird but there is no way to correctly animate simple thing like a growing geo on the path.
Or is there ?

Yes i know there is Loft.
But it's fucking archaic

Try Path deform, Max is becoming the industry standard for rubbing sticks together.

Yeah but:
1. It is bad on corners.
2. It goes via path not grows. I guess i can use some slice space warp but it makes it even more of a pain in ass.

Beyond basic modelling and texturing Max is THE proverbial pain in the ass.

What are you trying to create ? all the solutions I have are for organics.

I use Snagit and Upload to Screencast.

Screen-Cast-O-Matic's probably the quickest route.

Awww. Screen-O-Matic is awesome!

So i basically did what i wanted but...
As i said loft is an archaic thing. It has to go... Has to go.
Everyone need animated sweep modifier.

*dayuuum.. I really went to town with the size... and voice comments...
