Today I was pleasantly surprised that a “harmonic motion” XSI compound I created made it to the screenshot of the week on the eX-SI Support website!

Today I decided to make an ICE compound (honestly my first useful one) that creates an oscillating “harmonic” effect. This is useful for creating pulses of different amplitudes and frequencies for various point parameters (i.e. position, or scale). Simply attach the input you want to oscillate to the input and set the same value as the output position. There are other parameters for isolating the effect to a specific axis as well. Once the compound is installed it can be found under the “Simulation” section of ICE tools.

I encourage you to find any flaws or if you can make it faster please do so and let me know. Please feel free to email me at with any comments or questions!
