Free Cinema 4D Model: Paper Airplane

paper_airplane

Been playing around with Cinema R14 a lot and, in particular, with the new Aerodynamics settings new to this version.  For your downloading pleasure is a Cinema 4D model of a paper airplane (Mars rover, what?) that I’ve been using when messing around inside of R14 and something you can use when it arrives at the beginning of September.  Sorry, no airline peanuts included.

Paper textures and sky background is included.  This file is compatible with R12 & above and I also included an .OBJ file for those with R11 and below or any other 3D software.

Using the Cinema 4D Inheritance Effector Part 03: Make Particles Swarm Along Splines w/ Mograph

The Inheritance Effector is probably one of the most underrated and underutilized effectors in the effector menu.  In part three of my Inheritance Effector tutorial, I show you how you can fake particle or object movement that follows or swarms along a spline path that would normally only be able to be achieved with an Emitter or Thinking Particles and Xpresso.  Using a combination of the Inheritance & Spline Effectors along with other Mograph Effectors, you can achieve close to the same effect as the Emitter or Thinking Particles as a simpler alternative in your normal workflow without having to touch Xpresso.  Specifically, this tutorial demonstrates the powerful combination of using the Spline Effector with the Inheritance Effector to achieve a “swarming” effect.  As in Part 2 of this series, you can also add a Dynamic Tag to the Cloner Object to make sure your clones don’t intersect one another with this technique.
