20140704 Duplicating Objects on a Deforming Surface Script from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.
An extension from the tool from my previous video that merely sticks objects to a surface's normal, I have added distance control functionality.
Each duplicated object on the deforming surface now scales in reaction to the distance between itself an a control object. I also included an inverse distance and pulse mode with speed controls.
This is one way to manipulate the behavior of multiple objects with a few simplified controls and attribute values.
My script takes any 3 objects to be the surface, the object to duplicate across the surface, and finally, a control object to affect the scale of the array of the duplicated objects.
