Write With Clouds Using Thinking Particles and Pyrocluster in Cinema 4D


In this tutorial I’ll be going over how you can write with clouds using Cinema 4D’s Thinking Particles and Pyrocluster.  First, I’ll show you how to set up your clouds and clone them onto your spline object.  Next, I’ll show you how you can set up your scene to allow Mograph effectors to effect the Thinking Particles to randomize the scaling and position of the clouds.  Finally, I’ll show you how to scale up the clouds along a spline, creating the “write-on” effect.
