In this super quick tutorial I’ll show you a technique using the new R26 Rope Dynamics to make a text spline reveal. We’ll also use Field Forces, Spherical Field and a Simulation Scene. Make sure to update to the latest R26 version for this to work. Enjoy!

Have you ever imported a particle sim from Houdini into Cinema 4D as a .abc Alembic file only to find you can’t even move the position of them? They’re locked down! I found a workaround to get past this annoying problem. I hope it helps!

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create raindrops falling down a window pane in Corona Render and Cinema 4D. This technique can be directly copied in C4D Physical Render and the same principles can be applied in other render engines. We’ll use Blemish Pro maps to create the raindrops and use various nodes in Corona to randomize them and make it look really organic. Enjoy!

In this video I’ll show you some tips for how to use our Animated Cloth Pack. This product has 50 incredible 3D cloth animations which you can load into any render engine that supports them such as Blender, Octane, Redshift, Arnold, Houdini, Cycles and many more. They are .abc Alembic files which are super easy to use!

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use LightMix and LightSelect in Corona Render and Cinema 4D. It’s a really incredible technique where you can control all your lights, reflections, refraction, color temp and HDRI AFTER your render is done! Pretty bonkers, and super useful. Enjoy!

In this C4D tut I’ll show you a technique where you can actually loop a dynamic simulation. It’s using the mograph cache tag which is super useful. Huge shoutout to Alessandro Boncio for his help!

In this fun tutorial I’ll show you how to create a super quick vacuum packed effect in C4D S26. We’ll use the new cloth simulation with it’s balloon effects to have a piece of plastic drop down and vacuum itself around an object. We’ll also use a simulation scene and dial in the results there. It’s a great effect you can use on logos or whatever you want. Enjoy! (Btw, if you’re an Octane user, we have a ton of great plastic/translucent materials in our collection here: www.thepixellab.net/octane-texture-bundle)
