Tentacle-Bubbles - X-Particles Project File
In this X-Particles project inside Cinema 4D, we make these little tentacle-bubbles.
The particles are following the outer sphere with the xpfollowSurface modifier. To make the tentacles or the strands, we use the xpElektrix generator.
For some extra movement and some more interest, we’ve added a combination of the xpConstraints and the xpTurbulence modifier.
The render engine is Redshift. An alternative approach would be to use Cycles4D. Cycles4D’s Glass Dispersion shader would be a good starting point for the transparent membrane part.
Overall this is a fun project. There are a lot of different directions that it could take. Have fun with it and let me know if you have any questions.
Feel free to make some X-Particles requests if there’s something particular you’re struggling to learn.
