R20Fields + Vertex Maps + Mapping over Time

Post by craigAK » 03 May 2019, 03:12

I was pleased to see that TFD worked with Vertex Maps that are manipulated by R20 fields.I am using fields to manipulate the vertex map over time.

However, often the simulation stops looking at the updated vertex map and instead references the map from frame 1 or an earlier frame. So the animation of the vertex map is not reflected in the final simulation.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Update: Sometimes changing the order of the objects in the object manager helps TFD properly update reference to vertex map. I did get one test animation to work by changing priority of objects. But later it stopped working in higher resolution.

Note: I am using multiple fields to alter vertex map over time.
