pflow help!!! :)
show user profile  Locry
Hi guys!
Here's what I need to accomplish:
Imagine a solid wall built entirely of smaller cubes...
I need the cubes to "protrude" from the wall when a "control" object comes near it from behind..., then goes back to its starting position when the control object moves away from it.
I'm going to animate the control object, from behind the wall (along a parallell plane with the wall), the effect should be undulating cubes so there's a proximity factor.
I don't want to animate the individual cubes. :(
I remember seeing a pflow script that can do this... I just can't find the tutorial anywhere.
I'm not a pflow expert, but I do use it for simple things, can anyone point me in the right direction? :)
