Cinema 4D and X-Particles Stuff
Motion graphics has become a hobby of mine. I really enjoy how the math works in a-lot of stuff when it comes to motion graphics, which obviously makes me appreciate it even more. Check out some of the tutorials I have done using C4D and X-Particles as well as some creations I have made below.
Lissajous Curve Animation Tutorial
We will use the standard renderer in C4D in this tutorial. No crazy settings, though I'm sure you can make it look even better with the physical renderer, Cycles 4D, etc. We will use the formula object in C4D to create the lissajous curve. I really enjoyed this because it utilizes parametric equations, which is something I often find myself teaching as a college math instructor. X-Particles plays heavy in this tutorial as well with gradient parameter colors, gravity modifiers and more. Check it out.
Some Of My Creations
Some of these creations that I have made are based on tutorials or courses that I took online. Whether that be through paid courses on Udemy or Skillshare, free tutorials on YouTube, or individual parties that sell their own tutorials, you can learn so much about Cinema 4D and XParticles using these venues.
A Friendly Robot
I made the robot below by utilizing a course on Udemy. Check out the course by clicking here.
The ecosystem below was created in C4D using X-Particles. XPScatter was the generator used to create the scene along with some assets from KitBash3D and Forester.
The headphones below were created in C4D with inspiration from Elementza.
Low Poly Floating Islands
The low poly floating islands were created from a course I took at SkillShare. Check out the course by clicking here.
Modeling a Six Pack Case
The six pack case below was created based on the instruction of another YouTuber. Check out the tutorial by clicking here.
I used XParticles to generate a tree in C4D. I also used the Forester plugin for Cinema 4D.
