Hello hive mind,
I am trying to create an effect where letters are being swept away by wind, similar to this example in the picture (from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEsoDFBdQeU&t=20s).
I need to use vectors from Illustrator for the lettering which I converted into simplified paths and brought into C4D.
So far I have tried an approach with wind and soft body dynamics, also tried the cloth tag. But I am either not getting enough control or (with soft body dynamics) highly distorted geometry.
Are there better ways to approach this ? I need good control because the movement should start and stop (triggered by the footage background).Some contents or functionalities here are not available due to your cookie preferences!

I’ll play around with some options later, but it looks to me like that is more of an After Effects thing.

Have tried this in After Effects as well. But 3D movements / rotations and distortion at the same time just seemed to make more of a case for C4D to me.
