    Hi Dan

    Im liking the plugin although it has brought my poor old 2009 mac to its knees a few times.
    Is there any way to offset the centre of the sprits in order to sink them into the bottle a bit and be less round.
    Im guessing its not possible with meatballs but squashing them down on the surface would also be nice. Maybe even when the coalesce is not on.
    Great value, taking the drudge out of the whole process, many thanks

    Hi Dan,
    the rig is beautyful and works well. Two questions came up while playing with it:
    a) The transparency feature seems not to be working on plane objects like a window.
    b) How is it possible to change the whole drop setup to a single mesh (baking the drops)?

      Thanks, I am glad you like the rig. The transparency feature is designed for objects like bottles. I hadn’t thought of someone using the rig for a window. I will address this in a forthcoming update. As to baking, this is a Python thing which will also be addressed in the update.

    • Ron on July 3, 2014 at 9:01 pm

      Great – thanks for the info.
      When do you expect the update to be released?

      Bottles, cans and glasses yes – but I immediately thought of making a rainy window scene which works quiet well except the interscting meshes …

    Hello Dan,

    thank you for this great rig for a nice price.

    I have two questions:
    1. When I follow your video I drag the selection tag which determines where the drops should appear into the object slot.
    But what is the selection slot for ?

    2. Is it possible to influence the – too- perfect shape of the spheres ? Or even to add own drop objects to the rig ?

    I´m not a Xpresso/coding type, so maybe the last question is a litte silly.

    Best regards,
    Idris

    • Dan Couto on June 9, 2014 at 11:17 am

      1.) The selection slot is for those times when you do not want drops interfering with the refraction or see-through beauty of the hero drops the camera can see. I usually do not put drops on the back of a bottle for instance as they make the front drops look busy and dirty.
      2) The spheres you refer to are, I am assuming, the MIST spheres. These are meant to be perfect as they are also meant to be really small. If you want imperfection, work with the SMALL and MICRO droplets and increase the size between them so they retain more individual shape. Hope this helps.

    Hello Dan,

    thank you for that beautiful rig for a nice price.

    I have two question:
    1. Following the demo video I do this:
    I use the “object slot” to drag the selection tag into it. But what is the “selection slot” for ?

    2. Can I influence the – too – perfect round shape of the spheres? Or even replace the spheres with my own models of drops ?

    I´m not the Xpresso/Coding type of guy – maybe the last question is a little silly ;-)

    Hello Daniel,

    may I ask a question?
    I bought spritz and I have a problem because I use Vray for C4D as a render engine.

    Your sample bottle and can are round about 4,5 meter. So the settings are perfect wits this size.

    In Vray the model are normally in scale 1:1, so my bottle is 30 cm. And I have the problem now the the size of the tears and drips not fit. The are to big in the smallest settings. The drops works.

    Have you any tips or solutions for me?

    I don’t know how can I change the setting in XPresso.

    Kind regards Ralf

    • Dan Couto on June 4, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Please email me your file and I will see what I can do.

    • Tim Calvin on June 13, 2014 at 5:09 am

      Did there end up being a solution to the scale issue? I am working in real world dimensions and the drops are very large. I can scale many of them down but some bottom out.
      A scaling option would be nice in a future update.

    • Dan Couto on June 17, 2014 at 12:54 pm

      Scaling will be addressed in a future update.

    Hello Dan! Great rig, question regarding on using other models with this rig, would you please make a quick demo on where to add one’s object. Thank you!

    • Dan Couto on May 27, 2014 at 12:47 pm

      I will have that up today.

    Great plugin!
    Question: I can’t get them to work on a cloner object. Is it poly only?
    Thanks

    • Dan Couto on May 16, 2014 at 11:11 am

      I just tried it and it worked. I loaded one of the presets, then created a cloner and dropped a cube into it, sized the cube down and dropped the cloner into the object field of Spritz and voila! Keep in mind, it may take awhile to refresh. If you are still having problems, email me your file and I will take a look. Thanks!

    Hi!nice rig.
    Just one question.The bool-option,does it cut the inner bit away,or does it leave the intersection part behind?
    Thanks

    • Dan Couto on May 14, 2014 at 2:12 pm

      Not quite sure what you mean. If you want true, perfect transparency, I would use two objects with a very tiny gap between them.

    Hi, I can use my own models with this rig right? I often use cloth nurbs on glass bottles to add thickness, this will work fine with the droplet intersect?

    Thanks

    Mark

    • Dan Couto on May 13, 2014 at 2:35 pm

      Send me your file and I will test it. You can use your own models but I haven’t tried the rig with cloth nurbs. I usually model the whole object.

    • mark creaghan on May 21, 2014 at 10:38 pm

      Hi Dan,

      I purchased this rig, just starting to play around with it, what was the GSG lighting rig that you used for this demo?

    I have similar questions too. No answers yet? What happened to the developer?

    • Dan Couto on May 13, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      The developer is right here. There is often a delay in my receiving these notifications, perhaps because I live in Canada. As with Mark above, if you have a file you are unsure about, email it to me and I will test it, then email you back a render.

    Hi there. Very nice rig! are the droplets animatable? Also, can it be used on other bodies/objects such as tomatoes, lettuce etc?

    • Dan Couto on May 13, 2014 at 2:39 pm

      You can use your own objects. All parameters are animateable but you might experience jumping or unusual effects, depending on what you are animating and how fast you change the parameters.

    Hi There looks wonderful !
    Is this working well for animation purposes or is it more a tool for stills. THX for your effort creating this. !

    Jascha

    • Dan Couto on May 13, 2014 at 2:40 pm

      This is primarily designed for stills but it can certainly be used for animation.
