Also I created a step by step tutorial for those who does not have high speed Internet. I think with this simple effect, you can create lots of creative still images and animation. With Target Effector you can animate 1000 of cloned object following a target.
Step By Step Cinema 4D Tutorial- Target Effector MoGraph
We are using these commands in Cinema 4D to create a very cool effect very quick.
1-Create a Cube Object. Go to the Attributes Manager and under the Object tab, change the size to X=5 Y=2 Z= 5
2-Under Mo Graph Menu, Click on Cloner Object. Now drag the Cube into the Cloner Object to be cloned and be a child of the Cloner Object.
3-Go to the Cloner Object Attribute Panel, under the Object Properties, Change the mode to Grid Array. Change the count to X=25, Y=1 ,Z=25.You Have about 225 Cubes.
4-Go to MoGraph Menu and select a Target Effector. Make sure that the Cloner Object is selected when selecting the Target Effector . As soon as you create a Target Effector, you’ll see that all the cloned object following it.
5-Create a Sphere and go to the Attributes Manager and under the Object tab, change the radius to 10.
6-Now we want to set this sphere as our target , so everything will follow it. Open the Target Effector’s Effector tab in Attribute Manager. Drag the sphere from Object Manager into the Object field in Target Effector Effector tab.
7-Now select the sphere and move it in the graphic area and this is going to be a new target for cube clones to follow.
8-And to make this effect even cooler, go to the Target Effector Attribute Manager and select Effector tab. Check Repel on.
