    Hey guys, I’m fairly new to c4d but I’m struggling to achieve this look. I’m basically wanting cloners of text to fill a flat surface but in clean lines. When I seem to attach my cloner to surfaces it just spread out all over the place, is there a way to do this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Make a grid larger than you need with cloner, add a shader effector using scale -1, use a greyscale image to define which clones you want to keep. My image uses a checkerboard pattern but its the same principle. you can also do this with geometry, same set up but use a plain effector and fields, use some geo to define which clones to keep, stick it in the fields list.
