In this tutorial I’ll show you the free Cinema 4D Take Control Effector. It’s a fast way to isolate and control a single clone in a cloner object. Super useful!!
This is a free download which you can get here: https://aturtur.com/take-control-effector/
The Take Control Effector lets you assume control over any selected clone. Just select the clone ID and then that clone is linked to the Effector. When you move the Effector the clone moves with it in the Effector’s coordinate space.
Besides changing the PSR, you can also modify the clone, set custom clone weight, or change clone color. Take Control Effector works properly with Cloner object when ‘Fix Clone’ checkbox is ticked. There are also checkboxes to activate/deactivate position, scale and rotation linking in a ‘Matrix’ group.
There is a handy ‘Go To Origin’ button that moves the effector to the clone’s original position (before this effector is calculated).
