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

hysterical laugh is all i am when i see how Loft operates and how it represented in max worlfow /system...

After all these years... We still have to use Loft as it was created gazillion years ago in dos 3d studio...

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...
