How to get different Fades on a shape

Hi guys,

I’m trying to apply fades on a Shape. Actually, my shape has 4 sides and I want to get differents fades in each one. Now, I have an attractor curve and the result in A and B is far to be good.

Is it possible to control the fading area in each side?

Many thanks in advance.

Your attractor curve runs around the whole surface. if you want a fade between C and D to be different to the fade between A and B, then you would need to have two sets of attractor curve and have a different domain pattern, using the combined distances to control the fade.

I’ll have a look at changing the script to do what you are looking for in a couple of hours time.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for your explanation!! If I’ve understood well, I have to divide my attractors in 2 areas (from A to B and from C to B) and then create 2 different “REMAPS”… I’m goign to try it!!

Many thanks! we talk later.

Hi @christopher.ho,

I’ve been trying something but I don’t find a solution. Maybe I didn’t understand what you told me. If I define 4 Curves Attractors, the first runs well, but the second one block the first one and so on… I’m really stagnant. Could you help me, please?

Many thanks,

so I take the original point, find the distance to each edge and move it accordingly.
The final part is done by multiplying them both so the middle moves further.

Cool @christopher.ho!!! Many many thanks for your help !! This is exactly the result I’ve been looking for.

Thanks again!!
