Animate the 'u' and 't' values in the Formula Deformer
The end result I’m aiming for is to animate a ramp down over time in both waves speed and wavelength from rapid and short to slow and long, but also maybe to play around with this freely if the client want’s something a bit more abstract.
It would be nice also if I could (seperate scene) create a falloff for the wavelength so that the further from the source, the longer the waves get.
I have scoured the forums and there are bits and pieces about using Python and User Data to be able to multiply u (and t) by an input value, but none of it is complete enough for me to figure out the process.
Can anyone help?
Alternatively, there isn’t a way to use the Formula Effector in 3D is there? It comes with animatable wave speed and length already but is only 2D as far as I can see. That would also get me to my goal if it were 3D – i.e. radial.
Thanks in advance for any advice or examples.
p.s. ADMINS - The category selection when writing the post only gave me the 1 option of 'site issues' - not sure what this is about but if you could please move this post over to Questions & Answers I'd be very grateful

Sorry about your troubles here.
The best way is never to mix two questions in one Thread.
I hope the admin team will find out what prevents you access.
Until it is solved, I leave this mixed Thread here.
The file you like to have is below.
Click on the XPresso Tag and then Attribute Manager> User Data.
My best wishes
No troubles at all, and thanks for the file! I look forward to opening up later.
