Creating Soft Body Dynamic Strings in Cinema 4D

February 28, 2017 - By 

In this tutorial by EJ from Eyedesyn you’ll learn how to create dynamic springs using an often overlooked feature inside of Soft Body Dynamics!

New to 3D? Watch my FREE Cinema 4D Lite for the 2D Animator series

What will I Learn?

In this video we’ll learn all about the Soft Body Dynamics ‘Made of Clones’ option and how you can use it and the Mograph Module to create dynamic strings.  This workflow is the best way I’ve been able to find to do this sort of thing without 3rd party plug-ins and I’m excited to share it with you!

Be sure to check out this awesome Nike Air Max 2017 piece done using Houdini that inspired me to try to figure out how to create the dynamic strings in Cinema 4D!

Where can I learn more about soft bodies?
