vertical panels with decreasing distance
« on: March 19, 2018, 02:13:51 PM »
i want to create vertical panels with decreasing/encreasing distance as in my example screen.

i have done the macro tutorial with encreasing rotation but can´t figure out how to adapt the process for decreasing distance

input value for the first distance and the decrease (linear or better logarithmic) should be possible

Hi,

You might find interesting this related thread.

One of the possible ways would be to define the X Size of an empty Segment (linked to the Sequence Operator) by the Arithmetic Operator – in a similar way you may drive the Left / Right Padding value(s). In case of using two Parameters (like Start Distance, End Distance as in the attached sample scene), the expression should be following:

return Input1 – (XsectionPosition*Input2);

Please feel free to use the bundled macro “Increment by X Position”.

In case, you’re interested in controlling the Z Size (or Z Scale), you can use the same principles to drive the Transform Operator. Hope that helps.

Best regards,
