XP Xmas Advent

X-Particles 3.5 * FREE SCENE FILES *

It’s the festive time of year once again, and here at helloluxx, we thought we’d share some XP Xmas Advent gifts with all you Cinema 4D users out there. Each day of December until the 24th, we offer you a free X-Particles scene file. It’s going to feel like Christmas everyday! Well, perhaps not, but…

Voronoi Fracture Walk

C4D R18 Voronoi Fracture Download

Voronoi Fracture! Cinema 4D R18 has hit the streets. It is a really great release and Maxon have given us a great selection of new features. One of the top features is the MoGraph Voronoi Fracture object. The integration is superb and it is so much fun to play with. I’ve uploaded a few files…

Siggraph 2015 C4D Scene Files

Thank you for all the wonderful responses to my Siggraph presentation this year, much appreciated! As a bonus, I’ve decided to offer the original C4D scene files for download. This does not include everything from my presentation as some of the files are part of commercial projects and I can’t distribute those. Hopefully there’s something…

Springy Motion in Cinema 4D

Cinema 4D Tutorial – Springy Motion in Cinema 4D Someone on FXPHD recently asked me if there was a way to add some springiness to their Cinema 4D animation, you know the kind where an object overshoots it’s keyframed position (or any animated parameter). It can be overused, but if applied with some subtlety, it…

C4D Light Dome

Cinema 4D Light Dome Update

Cinema 4D light dome update. I’ve made a small update to the C4D light dome preset and thought I’d share it with you all. The Cloner no longer uses the Target Effector, the lights are simply rotated to point to the centre of the Light Dome Sphere. Simpler solution, therefore less to calculate, although you…

Cinema 4D Tutorial - Orbit Camera Preset

Cinema 4D Tutorial – Orbit Camera Preset

In July we will be launching a new site for helloluxx and throughout June we are offering various goodies for you to download.  This Orbit Camera Rig is something I use regularly when a specific shot calls for this type of motion. The camera rig is a really handy little setup with which you can…

Cinema 4D Tutorial - UV Grids

Cinema 4D Tutorial – UV Grids

When working with UV mapping it is often useful to be able to see how the UVs are unwrapping. Here are two JPEG images that should help in the arduous task of UV manipulation. If you add these to a couple of materials and then save them into your Cinema4D preset library then you will…

Cinema 4D Tutorial - Multiple Object Particle Emission

Cinema 4D Tutorial – Multiple Object Particle Emission

Here is a setup that you can use when working with Thinking Particles and emitting into objects. This setup allows you to emit particles from multiple objects but only using one emitter. The principle is as follows… You basically iterate through a list of objects. Then pass these objects into the volume position node, the…

Cinema 4D Tutorial - Sticky Dynamics

Cinema 4D Tutorial – Sticky Dynamics

In this tutorial I demonstrate a technique that allows you to create a sticky type effect with your dynamic simulations in Cinema 4D. By using the Force object in combination with Step Falloff you can create a setup where the objects stick together depending on the force applied. Check out the tutorial below, or watch…

Cinema 4D Tutorial - Thinking Particles from Dynamic Collisions

Cinema 4D Tutorial – Thinking Particles from Dynamic Collisions

This tutorial from demonstrates a method to create Thinking Particles from Dynamic Collisions using Cinema4D and some simple Xpresso. Although the technique described is fairly basic, this will lay the foundation for much more complex effects that are possible by developing the principle further. Download the scene file for this project here. Cinema 4D Tutorial…
