RollerCoaster 4D preset

Jochem Drost just released RollerCoaster 4D preset on his website.  With the preset, you can build your own dynamic roller coasters in Cinema 4D.

“I’m crazy about roller coasters and I was trying to build a dynamic coaster in c4d. I’ve tried it a few times before but I never got it to work, until now!  I kept improving and simulating to the best of my ability, and now 6 months later, it has evolved into a toolkit that all of you can use for free!”

pCache

Simon Fiedler demonstrates how pCache is used to deform particles. pCaches is a plug-in developed by David O’Reilly of plugins 4 CINEMA 4D. pCache lets users to take complete control of their particles. It caches/bakes, renders and shades for Thinking Particles, standard Particles, X-Particles and even Mograph Tracers. Also, it renders and generate RealFlow particles from RealFlow BIN files.

All of his plug-ins are released as “free to try and with free limited use.” But those that pay will get “support and updates plus early access to other content.”

G-Star The Art of RAW – The Unlimited Possibilities of Denim

There were two things that stuck out to me when I found out about G-Star’s The Art of RAW campaign created by Glassworks. It is unusual for a clothing brand to make an animated short film on demonstrating all the work that goes behind in making G-Star denim. And the music in the background was produced by Grammy Award winning artist, Skrillex.

But most importantly, it reminded me of this plug-in, Reeper X, created by Volker Römer of Codeworkers. The Pixel Lab shows you how it’s used on the video tutorial down below.
