A collection of tips that I came up with while working on client or personal projects.
An attempt to fake the differential line growth seen in this video vimeo.com/151311218 by the MIGHTY Simon Holmedal :) also here vimeo.com/169832358
Unfortunately it's really difficult to achieve the exact effect in Cinema4D (maybe only with Python, but it will get really slow).
Therefore I tried to figure it out in Cinema with of the shelf tools. It's not a procedural or flexible setup but maybe somebody will find a useful application for it.
Here is another example where I used numbers instead of the torus to create animatable typography vimeo.com/188566185
So you could use it to create some disgusting typography.... maybe... :)
A quick way to make a dynamic tree blowing in a wind out of a content library model using the build in Hair module.
I was always surprised and sometimes frustrated that Cinema doesn't have a native tool for baking the Tracer Object.
After a bit of thinking and experimenting I came up with this solution which is not ideal but gets the job done and it is interactive.
Also there is no xPresso or scripting involved which makes it easy to use even for a newbie.
I hope you find it useful.
