How to Animate Ripples With Field in Cinema 4D

How to Animate Ripples With Field in Cinema 4D

In CINEMA 4D R20, a new function, "Field", has been added. With the help of "Field," we can easily create more complicated effects that were previously implemented. There are also some concepts similar to "Field" before, that is, the attenuation of each effector, but the implementation is not flexible enough. The addition of "Field" allows designers to have more imagination space to create more complex effects. Fox Renderfarm, the best cloud rendering service provider, will bring you a sharing about how to animate ripples with the field in Cinema 4D, let’s look over it.

How to Animate Ripples With Field in Cinema 4D

What's Field?

In popular terms, it is a range of influence, through which changes can affect a selection, a map, or a series of cloned objects and other motion graphics. This influence range can be imagined as a gray scale map, which shows the different intensity changes of 0 and 1. We can make certain parameter influences by controlling this gray scale map to the graphs and selected sets in the range.

Firstly, create a new Matrix.

Now add another Plain, and add a Torus Field in Falloff, the key tool for making ripples.

The ripple effect is the effect that particles or moving patterns are diffused outward by the ring, so here we use the ring domain to affect the position of the Matrix. The ripple effect changes the height of the Y-axis ripple.

By changing the radius of the domain, you can control the range of influence on the matrix, and at the same time zoom in and out of keyframes to generate animation. Drag the field to see a simple ripple effect. But this ripple effect has only a simple change in diffusion fluctuations, and the animation is too hard.

To adjust more details, we can add a delay field to make the rebound effect, change the mode to elastic, and remove the value limit check to flexibly adjust the strength of the effect.

At this time, the ripple effect comes out, but a closer look will find that the ripple is not a smooth arc, we can see the obvious block shape. So we need to make some changes to smooth waves.

I adjust the internal offset value to 0, and finally, drag the matrix to the cloned object mode to render it.

C4D Tutorial: How to Animate a Square Collapse
C4D Tutorial: How to Animate a Square Collapse
The best cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, will share with you a C4D tutorial from 3d artist Flynn. This tutorial uses the C4D R20 version, if using the previous version, you need to adjust some relevant parameters. The tutorial involves a lot of techniques, you can understand and deepen the use of various commands through the case. I saw a great effect on the internet, and after some testing, I made a similar effect and wrote it into a tutorial. IdeaThe idea of production will be more important than the learning of operation, so we will talk about the overall thinking process first. Firstly, the first idea was tested. I created a Cube, a Taper effect, and added a Step effect in Falloff. Then use the Cloner to scale to make a rotated column, and then perform a circular radial clone on this basis. AT last, I got a circle, but the circle was not perfect, especially the joint was incomplete, so the method was abandoned.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseThe second idea is to directly use a disk to operate the surface on the disk, and this method constructs a suitable figure, but the control of the figure is a problem, we can only operate the whole figure but can not operate on a single column, and each part of the axial direction is located in the center, and can not make the feeling of turning.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseNow there is a problem, in order to better control the animation of the graphics, we need to use the cloned graphics, and directly cloned graphics can not become the desired shape, and directly make the shape can not be very good control, so we need to change the thinking, use cloning to create objects, and then use other methods to make the disk effect. So, using cloning, and then deforming the cloned object, we can achieve the desired effect. ProductionFirstly, to realize the animation control of a column of cells around, so we first make a cell clone object, and directly use the linear mode to create a column of element objects.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseThen add a Plain to the cloned column element, and adjust the displacement scaling rotation attribute under Parameter. Also add a Field effect in Falloff, and adjust Field/Field to X-. Drag the Linear Field to see the animation effect.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseIn order to rotate the elements more closely, we also need to adjust the axial position of the basic cube. Select Cube first, then adjust the pivot position in Spline/Axis Center.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseAfter making the control effect of a unit, we clone it into multiple copies and stack it together evenly.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseAdd a Spline Wrap and then add a Circle to constrain it to Spline Wrap/Object/Spline. And change Axis to +Z. A new Null is formed by the Spline created and the null made previously.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseOne thing to note here is that the scope of influence will be changed according to the size of the object at the same level, which will cause the shape to change with the movement of the linear domain. Therefore, we need to check the range box of the deformer to maintain the shape of the shape. When the scope box is fixed and the number of clones is changed, the objects outside the scope box will not be affected by the deformer, and we need to re-fix the scope box.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseThen we can adjust the size of the disk by changing the size of the disk, and then set the keyframe to the Linear Field. We can get an effect from the outside to the inside.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square CollapseThen the most critical step is that we don't want the motion of each column to be synchronized. At this time, we can use the random effector to achieve this out-of-sync effect. We can use the random effector to make a random offset of the key frame of the motion of each random Linear Field to get the final effect.!C4D Tutorial How to Animate a Square Collapse

How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D
The best cloud rendering services provider, Fox Renderfarm will share with you a tutorial about how to make pipe models quickly in Cinema 4D. How to control the AxisWe can revolve any project by tilting the Axis Center. Projects can be zoomed and tilted after setting the Axie Center. And by pressing Ctrl in the spline mode, we can generate plenty of poly.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D How to control the amountWhen making points, spines and polygons, we can change the amount by pressing Shift. We can also alter the amount in the Modeling Setting on the bottom right corner. This is going to be very useful when making animation and modeling.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D ModelingBoolean and Object Modeling is the most frequently used tools to make the splines more organized and beautiful.In general, when making regular models like pipes, there’s no need to make the whole model. We only need to find out all the symmetrical points and make all the symmetrical elements respectively. Then symmetrizing or radially distributing the elements will generate the whole model.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D How to Make a T-shaped PipeWe are going to make a transversely zygomorphic T-shaped pipe. Actually, we just need to hollow a cylinder. So we can just make the upper part and symmetrize it, then we can get the cylinder.Generate a cylinder, and adjust the subdivision. And set a circular spline in advance since we need it to assist us in the later modeling.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DLet's adjust the points in the right elevation. Align the points with the assisting circular spline. And adjust the splines and adjust the stretched poly on one surface.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DAdd a Subdivision Surface and a Symmetry to the Cylinder, then we have the T-shaped pipe.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DBy using the Loop Cut Tool can make the straight corners round and smooth.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DIf we want to make an at-shaped pipe with a different diameter, we can make the assisting circular spline smaller, but it takes more subdivision surfaces to achieve this.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DAlternatively, we can make it by subdividing the points or using plugins with a hollowing function. How to Make a Y-shaped PipeThe Y-shaped pipe is a radial symmetric structure. We can divide it into 3 radial symmetric units. According to the structure, we need to make a structure with a 60° angle. By symmetrizing the radial symmetric structure, we can form a 360° closed structure.First off, we need a basic cylinder. And I highly recommend you adjust the amount for a more convenient operation.By changing the axis centre, make a round angle with the unit structure. The size depends on your needs, but the creative process is the same.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DAfter tilting, we need to adjust the points that deviate from the axis centre in order to make the seamless object after symmetrizing. !How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4DThen we can symmetrize and adjust the unit radially to get the model we want. I used Radial Clone in this process. Some extension from the T-shaped and Y-shaped pipeAfter showing the creative methods of these 2 basic models, we can extend our methods into making pipes with 4 or 6 connectors. We can generate the basic structure with multiple symmetries and radial copies. Here are the basic structures of the multiple types of pipes. You can try to analyze the structure and model them if you are interested.!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D!How to Make Pipe Models Quickly in Cinema 4D SummaryThere’s never a one-step-for-all method to make models. Modeling takes effort to analyze and restructure. Here I provide a way to model, you can also use other tools according to your understanding of that tool.
