Introducing Mix controller

Posted in: All Tutorials- Aug 07, 2011 No Comments

Mix controller offers multiple ways of mixing controllers results( Additive/Average/Minimum/Maximum) . It works on Scalar/Vector and Matrix type of outputs. In this video we control the position of the cubes by mixing two different curve controllers while each one is working on different curve in different dimension. The result is kind of ruled surface generated […]

Introducing Magnet controller

Magnet controller ( also known as Attractor ) is one the Node based* controllers in PARA 3D which can generate both scalar and vector values. Mostly we use this controller in scalar mode. Magnet controller outputs a certain value within the specified range set by user (Magnet settings) based on the distance of the target […]
