Cinema 4D Field Force Tutorial
In this Cinema 4D tutorial, we’ll use the new Field Force, which which is a new feature introduced in R21. We’ll combine it with another new R21 feature, which is a new volume type called Vector. It allows us to generate Thinking Particles that can travel on the surfaces of objects. Thinking Particles are now much easier to set up than before. All we need is two Expresso nodes. From the Thinking Particles, we will generate trails with the Tracer object. We’ll export the animation as an Alembic file and bring it back into Cinema 4D. That allows us to scrub the timeline back and forth. We’ll use the Hair system to render the shape.
The project files are available for download.
