Rolling Shapes. C4D xpresso! DOWNLODABLE



WIP!

http://www.mediafire.com/file/i95zq29j1ncflqx/Rolling_Shapes_V001.c4d

This project started thanks to this video https://vimeo.com/4976255. I tried my best to replicate the rolling effect. (you can download the source file and look how was done!!!)
It was very interesting to take a look at ICE and see how powerfull it is. Seems to me much more powerful than xpresso, infact i couldnt replicate a couple of nodes of his setup!
So to make my rig work i had to use NaturalRolling, a great xpresso node done by Westy http://www.geocities.jp/westy_net/tools/xpresso/xpresso006/NaturalRollingNode1_0.html

This rig is still a work in progress and i will make it more user friendly over time (right now is pretty messy sry).

I have 3 goals for this rig (any help is very well accepted):
1 get rid of NaturalRolling and make it all with xpresso tools
2 make it more user friendly
3 find a reliable way to make deforming shapes roll on deforming surfaces (i currently have heavy sliding problems)

Thanks a lot to Torben Dirksmeyer who helped me a lot understand the softimage file!

This file is just working until c4d r19

C4D Silent tip 8: part1- IK dynamics



https://vimeo.com/channels/c4dsilenttips – https://twitter.com/Munkstudios

This tip uses: Joints, IK, SP turbulence, Skin, Loft

In this silent tip I use the standard particle effectors to animate a dynamic IK chain of joints. This is a really useful little trick for animating things like tentacles. You can view part 2 of this tip here https://vimeo.com/130189799

C4D silent tips & spoken tuts is an ongoing series of project breakdowns and short demonstrations showing techniques and tricks used for various different purposes. You will need some kind of knowledge of Cinema 4D to follow what is going on, but the idea is to show how quickly you can solve problems using the C4d toolset. Please let me know what you think or if you have any questions and especially if there is anything you would like me to cover. See more at https://vimeo.com/channels/c4dsilenttips

You can download the project here:

Enjoy. Pryce

Tutorial: Stick Shader in MoGraph using Xpresso



Tutorial example: https://vimeo.com/72060089
For the experienced users who just want to jump into Xpresso, the fun starts at 10 minutes or so.

In this tutorial we will see how to make a procedural setup using xpresso, to stick a texture or a shader into a cloner for use with MoGraph effectors.

You might have noticed I started using the tip jar. If you found this useful, feel free to leave a tip at your convenience.

Recreating Mograph in Houdini – 7 – time effector



In this video we’ll take a look at how to use Copy Stamping to modify parameters and animation of the cloned objects using attributes.

For more usage of the Copy stamp check out the “Grow Ivy” tutorial. Link given below.

On a completely different note, I’ve been writing an original Urban Fantasy story. I’m uploading it on a per chapter basic. I’ve written two chapters so far. I’m putting the link below. You can let me know what you think about it, if you read it. 🙂

Write On Effects With C4D #2 – Handwriting



Continuing on where I left off in the previous quick tip (https://vimeo.com/112898447), this time I show you how to use the MoSpline Generator to create a handwriting effect. I always wanted to do this in After Effects but the stroke effect is limited and doesn’t let you vary the stroke’s width over the length of the spline. Luckily C4D comes to the rescue. For the original project, I built a whole alphabet with hand written letters and used them to build whichever word that was needed. This quick tip is for demo purposes only, but you can split the letters in different groups and use several MoSpline Generators and animate them in different speeds. You are free to experiment and I’m open to new suggestions.
