  1. Here is my latest scientific animation and this time it is on G protein Coupled Receptors which are used by over 50% of all medications and loads of bodily processes. C4D is great for this type of stuff. https://drive.google.com/file/d/11f3AwfJcrXRav59xeOl2rSq7oiZ5KsXn/view?usp=sharing (link does not work and will try again later)
  2. The video link from Southpaw shows a great technique and it works fine in my R19.
  3. Maybe with a spinoff of this general technique? Erosion.c4d.zip

    Hrvoje's Free file pit

    I have been collecting your example files for quite a while and they are uniformly clever and didactic. Thanks for these additions!
  5. HSRdelic and southpaw, I want to thank you two for your ideas on my project. I had avoided rigging (since version 6) like the plague but after going over the basics of it I see that I will use it a lot with organic modeling. I did 2 files from scratch just to practice my newfound skills: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dR11dXIDAluFgas9xehVUYpOU_jIhC58/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sYwAr2fGtH5T37IVMTSrBQX_MI2fZ1tk/view?usp=sharing

    crowds in c4d?

    Both the Step effector and Random effector do this very well.
  7. Southpaw, Thanks for the example file it had great ideas and I like the technique of using bones and the Random Effector with Time Offset. Thanks! Here is the finished video and I used Step Effector but I'm going to make another version using your animation: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ltO-dUM1skL0f7wb3IX4kSjkeho9hOSm/view?usp=sharing
  8. You have great ideas! Thank you. It was amazing how simple the project was that way using the initial animation, cloning it, and then with the Step Effector. I'm happy again!

    Illumination (animation)

    That is wonderful! So creative
  10. Thank you! I will try that. I got nowhere with Xpresso. Sounds interesting.
  11. Would you please explain that in more detail. The receptor changes shape currently using animated PLA keyframes. I couldn't figure out how to use those in Xpresso.
  12. What I am trying to achieve is have the moving particles (ligands) come down to the cell surface receptors and land on them and only then have the cell surface receptors change shape to close around them. I have achieved the correct effect with the particles by having the Shader Effector control the Plain and the Plain does the elevation. I have the correct animation of the receptor closing as desired but so far they close sequentially controlled by the formula effector using id but the timing of the closing is way off and not in synch with the arrival of the particles at each receptor. The particle arrival at each receptor should trigger the closing and that's what I am so far unable to achieve. How can I achieve this synched closing? (file deleted)

    Thank you! Wait till you see what I have done lately. Now I have 2 separate molecules being dragged up at different times and I'm finessing the Nuclear Pore Complex to look way better. I will post the final video if anyone wants it and I could post the final file if there is any interest. It would be a great learning file to dissect. Everything is totally scientifically accurate with the latest research. It is truly amazing how much detail has been discovered with electron microscopes and other research tools. I really enjoy working through my copy of Molecular Biology of the Cell by Alberts and I use C4D as a way to burn the info into my brain. I feel just like I am creating nature using the program.
