  1. In this tutorial we will use the XParticles 4 Circle Packer, which is specialized in creating discs or spheres that are not touching, and see if we can get it to pack squares that aren't touching... I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. Thanks for watching! Cheers contrafibbularities
  2. Today I would like to introduce you to PowerSpline by C4DZone, which is a useful and affordable addition to the set of Cinema 4D standard spline types. PowerSpline comes with a number of default spline shapes that can be edited parametrically and used with the C4D standard tools and generators, like Sweep, Loft, MoSpline, Extrude etc. Amont other things, it can be quite useful for architectural modeling (e.g. for creating doors, windows). One of my favourite features is the Outline option that is available for all of the PowerSpline shapes. Unlike the Cinema 4D counterpart, it is completely parametric and provides a real-time update in the viewport of the outline you create. You can buy the plugin here: https://www.c4dzone.com/en/shop/plug-ins-17/power-spline-290.htm I hope you will enjoy this video. Thanks for watching! Cheers contrafibbularities
  3. In this tutorial we create a firewood shed based on a PDF plan. Like in the previous tutorial on building a shed, we will model the object to scale. This shed is much easier than the previous one, but you will need to have a decent basic knowledge of Cinema 4D as I will proceed faster and use shortcuts a lot. You can view and/or download the PDF plan required for this tutorial here: https://www.construct101.com/product/firewood-shed-plans-4x8-pdf-download/ In the tutorial I am using a plugin by Caleidos4D called "Stairs Profile". It is not required to complete the tutorial because I will provide a project file with the basic spline object I will create with the plugin. If you want to, however, you can buy the plugin here: http://www.caleidos4d.it/plugin_stairsprofile.htm This is the download link for the C4D project file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n3tg1pa9ekhzvlu/roof board start file.c4d?dl=0 I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. Cheers contrafibbularities
  4. You're welcome! As far as I'm concerned, I don't have a problem with you posting an animation of the model on YouTube. Make sure to send me a link if it's online, I'd really like to see it. If you want to do me a favour, you could post a link under your video to my free X-Mas Pack 2019, which includes the London Tower Bridge: https://studio.youtube.com/video/hoZQb7mIOJM/edit?utm_campaign=upgrade&utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=%2Fmy_videos Cheers, Wolfgang
  5. I hope this finds you all well. In my latest video I will have a look at a plugin that might be interesting especially for those of you who do architectural projects a lot. The plugin is called Baluste4D and is by Caleidos4D. You can buy it here: http://www.caleidos4d.it/plugin_baluster4d.htm I am using my free Arch-Profile-Collection in the video. You can watch a video on this collection here (there is a download link for that free collection in the video description): I hope you will enjoy this video. If you have any questions, just post them in the comment section. Cheers contrafibbularities
  6. In this short video we will have a look at a bit of theory and learn how loop and ring selections work in Cinema 4D. Knowing what I show you in the video will hopefully help you understand your meshes and enable you to read and analyze topology a little better. You can download the project file we will be using here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/d01tjue2zlsuqqf/how loop and ring selections work in Cinema 4D.7z?dl=0 I hope you will enjoy this tutorial and find it helpful. If you have any questions, just post them in the comment section. Cheers contrafibbularities https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAr6Yiq9qtc&feature=youtu.be
  7. In this video we will have a look at how we can create large libraries in Cinema 4D using Mograph to render out an image sequence. I will use a free plugin called "Batch Rename Objects" by Adam Swaab to make automatic renaming of objects easier. This is a Coffee plugin and will not work in R20 or newer. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be an alternative for this plugin if you are using R20 or R21. Moreover, that free plugin is no longer available for download either. If you don't have that plugin, you will need to use the C4D naming tool or rename the objects manually. At the time of recording the video I was not aware that the "Batch Rename Objects" plugin is no longer available. I do not explain the use of the C4D naming tool in the video. Sorry about that!! We will also have a look at how we can create custom preview images by rendering out an image sequence using the Cloner and the Plain effector. You can download the project file we will be using here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uhbxycmp5umm0lo/01 circular shapes start file.7z?dl=0 The project file contains 22 circular spline shapes I created in C4D based on reference images. I hope you will enjoy this tutorial and find it helpful. If you have any questions, just post them in the comment section. Cheers contrafibbularities
  8. I uploaded a free library of 330 Chinese patterns a while ago: A C4D Cafe member asked me if I could show how I did those patterns. In this video we are going to do a simple example, recreating one of those patterns. With variations where necessary, almost all of the pattern I did for that free library are based on the same techniques. You can download the reference image I am using in the video here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ak6ngpx0q9eh6xu/pattern 001 ref.jpg?dl=0 I hope you will enjoy this tutorial and find it helpful. If you have any questions, just post them in the comment section. Cheers contrafibbularities

  10. In this tutorial we will again create a real-world object and model a detailed 12' by 16' wooden shed based on a PDF plan, modelling to scale and not using the metric system but Inches this time. We will, for the most part, create this object pretty much like you would in real life. We will use MoGraph for modelling a lot and learn how we can create and position quite a few of the components for the shed with the Cloner object, and we will work with instances a lot in order to keep things more efficient and any repair work to a minimum. We will learn how to fix issues and modify things as we are working our way through the PDF plan to put the shed together, and we will also see that using the Cloner and instances will make modifications and corrections a lot easier in many cases. You can view and/or download the PDF plan required for this tutorial here: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/newshedplans/12x16_Shed_Plan.pdf In the tutorial I am using the "HB_Solo" script from the HB modelling bundle a lot. You can buy the HB Modelling Bundle here: https://motionworks.net/shop/hb-modelling-bundle/ I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. Thanks for watching!

  11. In this tutorial I will show how to model a common plastic box in Cinema 4D using simple hard surface modelling techniques. You can download a project folder with two project files. both files contain the reference images we will be using, so we can get started right away. You can download the project folder here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jjfv9khuoam9ljh/Plastic Box - Project files.7z?dl=0 I hope you'll enjoy the video. Thanks for watching! At the end of the video I am using two pluging for texturing and rendering the object. These plugins are optional and available here: Nikomedia Scene Rig https://nikomedia.at/nikomedias-scene-rig-ultimate/ Greyscalegorilla Texture Kit Pro: https://greyscalegorilla.com/downloads/texture-kit-pro/ Cheers contrafibbularities
  12. In this video we will create a short animation, smashing one sphere into another using Mograph and Voronoi fracture. We will create a bullet time effect with a free plugin by Nitro4D called "Magic Slow Motion". Finally, we will use the Physical renderer to add motion blur and make the fast movement of the objects more believable and realistic. You can download the "Magic Slow Motion" plugin here https://nitro4d.com/product/magic-slowmotion/ I hope you'll enjoy the video. Thanks for watching!

  13. Cinema 4D: Creating holes in geometry using Nitro4D's "Nitro Cycle" plugin Today we will have a look at how we can create holes (e.g. for pipe connections etc.) in Cinema 4D using a plugin called "Nitro Cycle " by Nitro 4D. You can download a C4D project file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wu4bu5z7068cfhq/Nitro Cycle Plugin - project file.c4d?dl=0 You can buy the plugin here: https://nitro4d.com/product/nitrocycle/ I hope you'll enjoy the video.
