I've been working heavily with the Coffee Effector the last couple of days and during that process a couple of questions came up.
First, when I apply the Effector I can only control the strength (the slider going from 0% to 100%) in the Effector and not in the Cloner itself. If I could get the Cloner slider value in the sourcecode it would be easy to implement that functionality, but I don't know how, because the sliders in the Cloner are assigned dynamically and might be different for every Cloner using that Effector.
Second question is regarding the possibility of writing an effector that can take the previous state of the clones into account (e.g. the delay effector). For now, as far as I understood, the Effector will just do a static calculation of a certain frame based on the position and rotation given by the Cloner and the Effectors preceding it.
Would it be possible to have the clones move a certain amount of units with every new frame?
Maybe someone knows a little more about the subject than I do.
Thanks in advance for your help.
