Can scope control independent objects through expressions?

Is it possible to control the displacement, rotation and scaling of independent objects through scope? Scatter is no problem, but I don't know how to get the value of scope through an expression by an independent object? Thank you

Hi,

Do you want to get the output color of a scope ? That's not possible with expression as expressions are bound into attributes from attributes.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply, I want to achieve a motiongraphic effect like cinema4d in clarisse. I found that scatter can assign textures to position, scale, and rotation. But the monomer cannot post texture. Will there be this function in the future?

What kind of effect do you want to achieve? I believe cinema 4D doesn't have just one ...

Cheers

I uploaded a video file. This is done with scatter. But I don’t know how to achieve independent objects。
Thank you

As you can't control the scale of an object with textured you won't be able to do this kind of effect with independents objects. However, you can combine several techniques of mapping to control the scale of scatterer instances.
