# traveling soundwaves

## Recommended Posts

Hi there,

in the attached file I've setup some very basic examples of traveling "sound"waves. I'd like to expand the idea with a further dimension. Please take a look at the hip..

Thank you

Lucas

If I have understood it correctly,

Magnet operator will make points move along their normals if you set some value in it's tz parameter. Deform sphere using ripple operator copy metaballs on it, use this as second connection to the magnet sop which is deforming scattered points along its normals.

sorry

thank you for your thoughts but it would be great to solve that with expressions. I think it should be possible with a sin function ? ...

Thank you

i'm also curious abour a vop way:)!

Hi,

i'm not shure i'm on the right track here... please see the vopsop based on

sin(sqrt((\$BBX-0.5)^2+(\$BBZ-0.5)^2)*720+\$F*4)

thank you

...

in this example the compression along the wave is controlled by an sine function in vops clamped by an animated ramp...the look is similar to what i'm after...

shouldn't it be possible without that ramp thingy? ... with continous emitted waves from the center.

THANK YOU !

Hi again,

would be really great if someone could help me further with that! maybe the setups in the hip files are not that clean, but hopefully i made my point clear. i think the problem should not be that difficult to solve for someone a bit deeper into maths:)

Thank you and sorry for my rush here

that's a great link. very interesting thread!...maybe someone could use the math from there to solve my issue... i'm afraid i can't.

thank you
