Signal Live Stream Q&A 12 Comments


Here is the recording of our Signal Live Stream where we go over some scene files made with our new animation Plugin, Signal.

We also answer questions about Signal from the live chat.

Playing with this new tool over the last few months has really changed my animation workflow in Cinema 4D. I’m excited to finally launch this and have it available to you.

    I’m liking “Signal”. Can you put a “sound effector” in the “Add Modifiers” folder?
    I would really like music tracks to drive “Signal”. Any way thanks. Your the BEST.

  2. hi,

    Is it possible with signal to animate the mine shaft exercise without keyframes?

  3. The playback mode pingpong is using the same curve just backwards. Why don’t you add another pingpong without mirroring the curve?
    Let’s say the object is growing fast at the beginning and also starts fast with shrinking.
    And thanks for all the great work!

    • If you want it to come back in a custom way, you can just make the curve go up and down in the curve editor directly. Then use loop mode.

    I made he switch from Softimage to C4D when the Softimage EOL announcement came out (after evaluating many apps, including Houdini and Modo). Having now used C4D for a few months in production, I have to say that the one thing that was always a struggle was understanding how to get noise to drive channels that we’re not just motion or deformation of points, but to drive parameters like the intensity of a light (for example). Noise came along at the PERFECT time for me, because this is something I need to do a lot in my VFX work, and it was always a struggle. I can’t wait to play with Signal and see how it makes uh tinge easier for my day-in and day-out work. Thank you all so much for this very useful plugin!

    Hey guys,

    I tried to link the MoText attribute to signal so I could animate from one character to another for a simple loop, however It doesn’t seem to work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Really loving Signal, have been transferring the animations I make with it into Unity3D without any issues or needing to convert to keyframes :D

    Great plugin.

    I don’t see that signal can be used for point level animation. Am I correct here – I don’t see any interface option here you can drag up to the signal icon…

    Please, please, please put together a less frantic tut on using signal to create cool camera moves — like for car commercials. Malty has a cool script for AE that does this and I’m CONVINCED Signal could do the same for us in C4D. Best use of multiple nulls and cameras etc.

    Here’s the vid: http://vimeo.com/67639426

    Many thanks
