That’s right, if you buy a new license of 3.5 today, you’ll get the 4.0 upgrade for FREE when it ships! No waiting, no stress. You’ll get the upgrade as soon as it is out. Pretty cool huh?


The much-anticipated 4.0 update to the popular X-Particles plugin is just around the corner. With this update comes fantastic new features like Circle Packing, Cellular Growth, and a new Cloth simulator!

XP4 is amazing, everything feels like an upgrade, not only the plethora of new features but the existing ones have seen some major boosts!


  • xpCirclePacker & xpCellAuto xpCirclePacker allows you to emit your particles while dynamically avoiding intersections. The xpCellAuto object generates particles based on three different Cellular Automata Algorithms.
  • xpSplineFlow xpSplineFlow enables you to create organic, dynamic, smooth flowing particles along a Spline. Animate the Splines by keyframes or deformers, xpSplineFlow updates in real time. Creating natural flowing realistic simulations has never been this easy.
  • xpFlowField The next chapter in particle control, with xpFlowField, the possibilities are endless. They can be mixed and layered to push directed particle effects to the next level.
  • xpClothFX The all-new xpClothFX Dynamics system brings remarkably fast cloth simulations right into the X-Particles workflow. It’s the next chapter in our ongoing journey to bring our users a fully unified dynamics system right inside Cinema 4D.


X-Particles is THE must-have particle plugin for Cinema 4D.

X-Particles is a robust particle system for Cinema 4D that is made for designers. Unlike other particle systems for Cinema 4D, X-Particles doesn’t require that you know Xpresso or know any complicated programming. Like Cinema 4D itself, X-Particles is a particle system that does a lot but makes it easy and fun to play with and make beautiful effects.

In the same way, Mograph revolutionized animation in Cinema 4D, X-Particles (by Insydium) does the same for particle systems. In fact, if you are familiar with Mograph, you will be right at home in X-Particles. But now, you aren’t limited by how many objects you have on screen. Animate and control MILLIONS of objects with X-Particles.


  • Generate MILLIONS of particles
  • Full Dynamics, Collisions, and Fluid effects
  • Compatible with Hair and Xpresso
  • Illumination based emissions, use Cinema 4D lights to trigger particle emissions from surfaces.
  • Use sound to drive your particles parameters, speed, color, size and much more. Sound has never been this compelling.
  • The FollowPath Modifier has direct access to the Mograph Cloner Object, giving you even greater control over particle paths. Control like never before!
  • New Trail Deformer helps breathe life into your Trails, use formulas or shaders to deform your Trails, add animation for full control over the Trail Object.
  • Our exciting new xpParticlesFalloff will open the door to endless possibilities, from random growth to unique color changing effects. Let each particle become controller of your modifiers.
  • Enhanced Group Object, giving you more control over your particle groups. The group object can be used in 3 different modes, from display only to control over particle properties.
  • Map Modifier parameters from particle data, using splines for detailed control. Bring your simulations to life with our all New Data Mapping feature.


  • INCLUDES 30 X-PARTICLE SCENE FILES to help you get started


Your X-Particles License is Unlocked. This means that you can install your copy of X-Particles quickly and easily with no need to type in your Cinema 4D Serial Number. Your license of X-Particles goes with you no matter what version of Cinema 4D you end up using in the future.


X-Particles is the most fully featured, advanced particle simulation and rendering environment for MAXON’s Cinema 4D. Made for designers, our super fast particle engine enables you to work and render millions of particles and its advanced tool-set gives you full access to everything you need to create the shot you require.

X-Particles has revolutionized particle systems in Cinema 4D.



Controlling your particles is essential. With X-Particles you take total control over your particle simulations using a simple and unique system of Questions and Actions.

X-Particles 3.5 adds higher level control through Data Mapping, the ability to control particle modifiers directly from the particles using their age, speed, temperature etc.DY




Using the X-Particles dynamics system, particles can flow, collide and burn. X-Particles enables you to simulate a wide range of physical phenomena and have them all interact under one unified engine, all controlled using the same flexible and powerful system.


X-Particles enables you to render particles, splines, smoke and fire all within the Cinema 4D renderer. A range of shaders are also included for sprites, particle wet maps, skinning color and even using sound to texture your objects.

X-Particles is also supported by popular render engines such as Arnold, Octane, and VRAYforC4D.

Fluid Effects

Version 3 added a ton of new liquid effects including a new FLIP solver for more realistic and faster fluid simulations. All this means faster liquid looks with less time. Skin your fluid sim and get water effects or any viscous liquid.

Sprites, Splines, and Polygons

From motion graphics to organic branching and liquid surfaces, X-Particles offers a wide range of object and polygon generation.

Don’t take our word for it

Check out what these industry leaders have to say about X-Particles


X-Particles is built seamlessly into Cinema 4D like it is part of the application. Compatible with the existing particle modifiers, object deformers, Mograph effectors, Hair and Thinking Particles. If you know how to use the Mograph module, you already know how to use X-Particles, it’s that easy.

   See for yourself why X-Particles is THE industry standard particle plugin for Cinema 4D. Get your copy today!


X-Particles is the must-have particle solution for Cinema 4D. It has been used in countless productions and is employed wherever dynamic particles are needed. Though X-Particles is intuitive as far as particle systems go, it can still be daunting to even the most experienced artist.


Join the thousands of Cinema 4D artists using X-Particles to achieve amazing results every day! X-Particles is the most fully featured, advanced particle simulation and rendering environment for Cinema 4D. We believe it is a MUST-HAVE plugin and once you’ve tried it, we think you’ll agree.

Reflectance got to be too complicated. Topcoat simplifies my life just like HDRI Studio did to help get the look I wanted.

I love HDRI Rig and Topcoat. The tools you provide are real time savers!

Topcoat is great for adding realistic wear and grunge layers that give objects that extra punch to look real.

I have TopCoat docked in my layout, I use it so much. I’m always throwing on and layering a few things. It’s optimized well, too.

Best HDRI’s on the Net I have searched everywhere!

HDRI Link simplifies workflow and increases productivity by easing the burden when transitioning between different rendering engines in Cinema 4D.

HDRI Link is a shortcut to the end of your HDRI scavenger hunt.

HDRI Link has become my go-to plugin when doing HDRI lighting in Arnold.

It’s hard to think that a tiny little tag can change your workflow so dramatically. But HDRI Link does just that.
