We haven’t done a Burning Question in a while and the topic of Soft Body Dynamics keeps coming up! It’s fun to play with! Here are a few tutorials that show different things that can be done with Soft Body Dynamics.

An Introduction to Soft Body Dynamics in Cinema 4D

EJ at Eyedesyn gives a quick introduction to using Soft Body Dynamics and how to loop soft body dynamics to make an inflated rubber spheres GIF!

Tips For Using Soft Body Dynamics

Joren of The Pixel Lab has some great tips on using the Soft Body Dynamics Feature in Cinema 4D. He talks about some problems he has encountered and how to get around them. He goes into "how to make and use a cage with the Mesh Deformer, and how to use Vertex Maps to refine your soft body animation." Joren uses The Pixel Lab Industrial Pack 2 in this tutorial, which is a HUGE pack with over 20 industrial models, 10 C4D Terrain Shaders, 5 Complete 3D Scenes, 30 Industrial Textures, 24 HDRIs and a Studio set! I really hope this pack will be helpful to you!
