Morphing Between Splines by eyedesyn

EJ Hassenfratz, aka eyedesyn, how to transform this Bubbly 2D text logo into another one on this tutorial.  He explains his workflow in morphing a spline into another in Cinema 4D in his latest post.

Spline Dynamics

Fredric Furstenbach shows you how you can influence splines with dynamics. Take a look at the video below to see how Fredric used his technique.

Align an object to a spline

Faisal of Project 4D shows you how to align an object to a spline. Very quick and very useful tutorial.

Original post at Project 4D


“It interpolates multiple splines. It blends shapes or creates transitions. SplinePolator can align an arbitrary number of points along a spline.”

SplinePolator is a plug-in created by Plastiq. Faisal of Project 4D demonstrates the plug-in.

Align To Spline Xpresso

Align To Spline Xpresso

In this tutorial, Tim Clapham from helloluxx.com takes you step by step through the process of building an align to spline expression using Cinema4D and Xpresso.
The advantage of this set up over the built in expression is that the position along the spline is not clamped between 0-100%, therefore the object can be looped along the spline multiple times. Tim also adds a tangential option with a parameter that allows you to define the axis used for alignment.
