In this tutorial, we are building a "Tornado Rig". Inspired by a video of a self-made fire tornado, we recreate the effect using the xpWind modifier. We will learn how to create 3 different styles, starting with a little snow tornado, followed by a twisting school of fish and finally a liquid twister.   This tutorial is made with XP 3.5, however, it can be applied to XP 2.5 also.

In this tutorial I'm going to show you a really cool workflow for morphing between splines using Cinema 4D.  This kind of spline morphing animation is awesome for using in conjunction your 2D workflow in After Effects by applying a Cel Shader material to your splines.  The nice thing about using the Cel Shader or just flat colors in the Luminance channel of your material is that when you use Cineware, these type of scenes render out super fast as a Cineware layer in After Effects because…

Cinema 4D’s wood shader can give great results but it’s difficult to decipher. In this tutorial I attempt to make things just a tiny bit easier to understand!

In this tutorial I'll be sharing some quick tips to help you be a better animator in Cinema 4D. For those of you coming from After Effects, I'll relate some of the important animation techniques you probably use very often in After Effects and how they can be done in Cinema 4D.  Topics covered in this tutorial are:  Gimbal Lock: What It Is & How to Avoid It Quaternion Expression Overdub Align to Path Tag Creating "Roving Keyframes" with the Constant Velocity Function How to Loop/Rep...
