Nitro4D Magic Slow Motion

In this tutorial, The Pixel Lab shows you how to create a really smooth time-remapping inside of Cinema 4D using Nitro4D’s plugin called Magic SlowMotion. He further explains how the process of how the time remapping is working.

“With this plugin you can make very easy slow motion effect in dynamics. Also there is a spline you can control the animation to easy ease in and out. It is very simple. Just make a new object and select the start and stop. In seconds, you have a nice slow motion effect. It works great with thrausi, catastorphe, nitroblast to make fracture effects in slow motion.”

Create your own tool kit!

Ever wondered how guys from GreyscaleGorilla or c4dtools.net made their own complex tool kits into a single file, so you can grab them from your content browser and use them in your projects?

Sam Welker of Think Particle shows you how.


“We make tool kits for workflow enhancements. They’re definitely quite useful and to add to that, you can share them! Some great sites that have C4D tools are c4dextensions.info and c4dtools.net. Make sure to let me know if you make a preset library so I can check it out! I’d love to help get the word out!”
