Many of the effects you mention have been improved, optimized and given a more consistent name.

They below effects are all included in the latest installer.

The gradient wipe effect can be found here:

The new Special\Bix effect is an improved version of the old WalkingBix effect. Take a look at the demo show Model\

I had seen this cfx, but it works manually unlike the previous.
Which creates me a problem.
Since I used the above to move the wings of birds and insects

I checked all settings (especially bix + period) but I get the same result.

That's amazing. I had no idea the bix effect could be used to bring butterflies to live as well.

The FX PERIOD property of the Special/Bix effect keeps the arms and legs animating after you have adjusted them. Maybe this effect can be used for your butterflies as well.

You could also try the Text/DancingFool effect. This trick is used in BixPack 9:

Thank you for responding Michiel.
I've tried various settings (special bix) and also exported the model in different positions from (CINEMA 4D) but none of them get to the right path.
the problem that cfx (special bix) is working, the movement set on the textures, and not on the complete model. Each option of movement is based on a certain texture.

But I tried it with another cfx working with all the complete model without considering the textures (Dancingfool.cfx) and this result is closer to the desired.
The initial position of the butterfly, is the center of screen as was exported from cienema 4d

Your video is private.

The bix effect has been designed specifically for the Bix 3D model. We will convert the old walkingbix effect to bring your butterflies to life.
