I have the plugin VertexMapAnimator for Cinema 4D. Is it possible to make a Simulation with this plugin like the Picture?
The the texture around the needle should build up with the movement from left to right.
the answer is yes but the Vertex Map Animator is not the right choice, the final result may be not very good due to the mesh topology size.
You have to increase a lot the subdivisions but you cannot remove the tesselate effect anyway.....you can just try to reduce the effect.
The right choice to do this animation is using another plugin, the UVW Laser which is dependent to the UVW instead of mesh topology size

In the attachment there is an example scene if you want to try the effect
