In this video I collect a list of positions from an array of points using the collection controller. Then I passed this list to a magnet controller. Magnet controller generates output for each point in collection and return a list of scalar values.Then using a List controller I managed to find the biggest magnet value […]

# How to calculate the area of quad polygons

Para 3d provides incredibly simple and direct approach to create L-system and fractals. All you need to do is designing the first generation of your fractal. Para will populate objects in array using your given transformations in certain rules which you define in multiple strings.

# Following two attractors

In this video I introduced a new controller in Para 3d V3.0 . Blend controller works just like blend map in 3ds MAX. you provide two different controllers (A and B) and s third controller which controls the blend amount. As blend amount increases from 0 to 1 the result of blend controllers moves from […]

# Rotate objects toward magnet point

Posted in: In Action!- Apr 05, 2013 No Comments

In this video I have tried to show how you can use Para to manage a bit complex max-script code which can keep the objects pointing toward a point inside the scene. Although for MAX users this is quite easy with “Look At” controller which does the same job. But here I’m trying to come […]

# Surface optimization (Face orientation)

In this tutorial you find out how to re-structure a polygon to clad the surface with co-directional panels while working with 1D domain in surface controller. Also you learn how to rotate control points/vertices of panel objects by adding a custom parameter and using transform controller on sub-object controller.
