How to Build an Align to Spline Setup With an Offset in C4D

Julian Field shows how you can create a “lazy align to spline” set up in Cinema 4D.

This new multi-tech tutorial from Julian Field, the Xpresso Mechanic, shows how you can use Xpresso and Python to create an align to spline setup with a built-in offset function. Think of the system of having a lazy, follow-through action in animation.

The key to making this system is the Get Nearest Point on Spline node.
