I am currently a Cinema 4D user but am thinking of switching over to Blender for a couple of reasons. The first is the cost. It is just too expensive to keep updating C4D. The second is all the functionality available in Blender which means I don’t have to buy a lot of extra software to put together my animations.
So, in C4D, they have a tag called XPresso which is an editor that allows you do internal programming. For instance, say I have a computer console with a lot of random blinking lights. XPresso allows me to program the lights to blink randomly. You can control just about any of the attributes of lights, objects, etc. This stuff just runs in the background once it is set up. You can also set up custom controls for controlling objects, attributes, bones, etc. For instance, I could set up custom controls that would control individual fingers on a hand. Then I could add a control that would control the individual finger controls so that you could have one control to make a fist. Hope I described that correctly.
Is there anything in Blender that would allow me to do that without having to key frame everything? And I am pretty sure you should be able to set up custom controls as well.
Thanks in advance…
