1. Half Rez 2014: Chris Schmidt – Half Rez Cinema Smash 3 Comments

    At Half Rez 2014, Chris continues to try to use Cinema 4D in the most impractical ways possible. This year is Half Rez Cinema Smash, a cube combat game played in realtime in the viewport of Cinema 4D. In this breakdown he explains how his brothers Danny and Johnny translated a python SDK for Xbox controls in C4D python object and the rest was just playing with xpresso and dynamics. In no way suitable for any kind of distribution.

    This video was filmed during Half Rez 2014, a motion design and 3D animation festival in Chicago, Illinois.

  2. How to Create Bubble Text in Cinema 4D 16 Comments

    Bubble Text

    In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can easily create bubble or balloon type inside of Cinema 4D.  We will start off by using a MoText object and turn it into fun, bubbly, cartoony type!  Then I’ll show you how you can take it even further by using Soft Body Dynamics Pressure settings to make it look like your type is inflating or even deflating like a balloon.  If you have any questions, be sure to hit me in the comments below!  Have fun and if you make something with this technique, be sure to share it!  Enjoy!

    Be sure to check out my lynda.com course where I show you how to animate this type of cartoony balloon type using Jiggle Deformers in Cinema 4D!
