How To Create A Dynamic Pillow Animation in C4D With Cloth

Learn how to create squishy dynamic pillow animations.

by Greyscalegorilla


In this video, Nick Campbell shows you how Chad Ashley created his popular animation for the Patterned Canvas Material Collection. Learn how to create a pillow shape from scratch using the Volume Builder, then learn how to use simple UV techniques and loop selections to create photo-real stitching. Finally, learn how Chad used Cloth simulation, Field Forces, our latest Material collection, and tons of little tweaks to create the beautiful final render.

      We used version 2023 for this tutorial. That should fix the problem.

    Great Tutorial, as always, but my C4D seems to miss some options.
    I’m working with R25.121 and my Remesher doesn’t have the symmetric options? Do I have to install something to get them?
