Animating Fur

Recommended Posts

  • Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone knows how to animate "fur" that is represented as grass in my case, to have the effect as its gently blowing in the breeze? I am using Cinema 4d 11.

    Is there a simple straight forward process or any video tutorials?

    Thanks for your help in this matter, much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Suziannarockafella!

  • Hi Brian, Yes i do have "hair" but since playing around and testing it , im finding it really hard to get that flow effect.

    Any ideas of what to play around in the dynamics tab?

    Thanks dude,

    Suze

    You can use the wind generator from Objects -> Particle. In fact, as Hair is a particle effect, you can use all the particle effectors on Hair.

    I did this recently for a theatre project.

    The sekrit is.....

    Reverse gravity on the hair.

    Doing this, you can still keep the grass free flowing, and it doesn't fall down to the ground all the time.

    EDIT: Here is a file showing what I mean. In my actual set I created wind objects that were animated to go through the grass. This stops it all moving at the same time, etc...

    I just tested the flowing grass with reversed gravity and several wind objects with falloff. I've added a vibrate tad on the wind to simulate turbulence.

    Nice Base80.

    Can't wait to see your wind setup in the tutorial.

    Great to see you pump out more tutorials again for the new year.

    Love the BaseWheel

    Hi,

    I was just reading this topic and thought it would be fun to try. I've never had much fun or success with HAIR. So, here's my little project. beachgrass.swf
