Oscillator

Deform and affect Shapes using wave patterns.

‚ÄčCommon Attributes +

Strength Fade to Zero - when checked, Strength (including Falloffs) will interpolate between 0 and the result. When unchecked it will interpolate between the Minimum and Maximum values.

Use Normals - when checked deformation will be based on the normals of the Shape. When unchecked points are scaled from the middle of the shape (only relevant when used as a Deformer).

Type

  • Sine - create a sin wave.

  • Cosine - create a cosine wave.

  • Tangent - create a tangent wave.

Wave Style

  • Normal - a smooth, curved wave.

  • Square - a square wave.

  • Triangle - a triangular wave.

  • Sawtooth - a sawtooth wave.

Minimum - set the minimum height of the wave.

Maximum - set the maximum height of the wave.

Frequency - set the frequency of the waves (a higher number will create more frequent waves).

Separate Channels - generate different values for x and y.

Value Offset - offset the min/max values .

Time Scale - affect the period of the wave (see tip below).

Stagger - when used with a Duplicator this will stagger the results across duplicates.

When connecting Oscillator to e.g. position.x on a Shape use Time Scale to speed up the oscillation.

A default Oscillator will loop if you set your Playback End to 63.
