How to add pages

To add pages you need to perform some steps:

1. Duplicate one or more pages using Control-drag or the Duplicate function in C4D.

2. Make sure that the order is correct.

3. Open the main XPresso Tag and Click on the big node with green header.

4. On the Attribute Manager’s Node Properties page there is a box with the current pages inside. Drag the new pages in the box and keep all the pages in the correct order.

5. Done!

New features in Realbook V.1.1:

New Animation Tab
Enable Automatic Animation = enables the automatic animation mode
Animation = sets the grow of the total animation.
Overlap = sets the amount of overlap between the animations of consecutive pages.
Enable Add Overlap Variation
Add Overlap Variation = the spline defines an additional positive Overlap during the Animation. Be careful because it's easy to introduce intersection between pages.
