Create beautiful & fun viscous fluid simulations using X-Particles in Cinema 4D, over the course of nine hours and 31 minutes.
by Justin Bates of C4DVFX
This tutorial extensively investigates creating small to medium scaled Liquid Simulation using X-Particles within Cinema 4D. Techniques will include pouring, sticking and colour mixing for creating viscous liquid effects used for such things as paint, gels, slime, goo, saliva and chocolate to name but a few.
This tutorial xpFluids V01 solely focuses on the xpFluidPBD solver object and does not go into the xpFluidFX solver. Justin will cover medium to large scaled fluid simulations with the next tutorial; XPFluids V02.
xpFluids V01 COVERS :
– The basic fundamental settings of the xpFluidPBD solver.
– The X-Particles project scene settings.
– Emitters – Standard, volumes & objects, Particle Radius
– Particle Groups, Modifiers, Actions & Questions related to the simulations.
– Meshing your simulation – OVDBMesher
– Collisions – Objects, surface adhesion techniques.
– Wetmaps, Vertex Maker & use of Fields for control.
– Colour mixing.
BONUS SCENE FILES
Bonus Scene Files are provided of Justin’s setups, some of which use Redshift for Rendering. The training introduces over 60 working files throughout the course, however Justin being the boss that he is provides even more! Another 15 plus in fact! These bonus scenes are final scene setup files to allow you an opportunity for deeper exploration. Thank you, Justin!

TOTAL HOURS : 09:31:40
01 : Training course assumes that you have a good understanding of Cinema 4D and X-Particles.
02 : You will require X-Particles from Insydium, build 728 or above.
03 : This tutorial has been made in Cinema 4D R20, some techniques require the use of Fields in C4D R20.
04 : ***These FluidPBD settings will not work in XP4 or below.***
01 : This is not a rendering and lighting course, however, Justin does show how to setup basic materials in Redshift and Cinema 4D to render fluid colours.
02 : Visuals in the trailer are a representation of the techniques and methods that will be covered in the training. Only a select few scene files will be made available in the Bonus scene files.
