Expression Control Setup

Unread postby qinyao » Fri Mar 15, 2019 11:49 am

Hi,
Great Clarisse team, I have a question about the video "Siggraph2018 - The Expressions Game".
In the end of this video, we know we can use Clarisse expression to control a building setup.
Is there any details about this setup?
How can I create the control node?
How can I set customized attributes in this control panel?
It looks very cool for me, can somebody give me more informations about it.

Hi,

Run this script :

python code

ix.cmds.CreateObject("Controller", "ProjectItem")


It will create an empty project item that you can fill with custom attributes (by right-clicking in the attribute editor while the item is selected). Then you'll be able to bind those custom attributes to other object attributes.

The building setup is made by controlling point array attributes and position. Then, a scatterer is used to scatter modular meshes.

Cheers ;)
