  1. The gist of the effect I need done is this. I need this Logo to start out fractured into a ton of pieces and off screen in all directions then I need the pieces to kindof suction in towards the screen center where they come together to form the full logo My current workflow is basically run the sim backwards (the logo starts off fully formed and i explode it outwards, then reverse the RBD sim) The problem when I reverse the sim I get a very harsh stop on each piece once the piece gets to its start pose I fix this sort of by running a jiggle or lag CHOP motion effect over the points after i reverse the sim, adding some overshoot to the sim so it overshoots the rest pose and then settles back into the rest pose the issue is now i get intersections with the pieces. Was hoping someone might know how i could maybe run another simulation on top of the reversed sim? Like have it follow the same motion but adjust for self collisions?
  2. So I recently stumbled onto the Motion Path Handles Tool which allows you to visualize your animation curves in 3d space and also edit your keyframes in 3d space as well. I absolutely love this feature but from what i've read and experimented with it only seems you can get this Motion Path Handle UI tool at the OBJ level as it requires you to have the Pose mode selected on the left hand side of the Viewport. I was hoping someone could help me find a way to use this Motion Path Handle tool at the SOP level for a kineFX rig on say a rig pose node or something. If nothing like this exists at the SOPs level yet maybe we could brainstorm a way to either get something similar working at SOPs level, or how to procedurally import joints up to the OBJ level to be controlled with Nulls and therefor could use the Pose tool and the Motion Path Handle animation UI at OBJ level still.

    Hey does this work in 18.5? Just purchased it and am trying to get it running but its not showing up anywhere
  5. Hey Julian! This is awesome! Trying to mess around with it right now, but I'm in H18 not sure if that matters and the car does not seem to want to follow the path, The sim works fine and suspension works but all it apears to do is pop up on top of the geometry and kinda wiggle for a sec, am i just an idiot missing something basic?
