Insane Amount of Control

With Signal’s simple, logical UI, you can control and manage each of your parameters in one place. You can also add “modifiers” to further tweak your animations. Creating complex animations was never so simple.

Easily Create Seamless Loops

Create animated GIFs or looping audio-visual backdrops with ease. Set your loop point and everything stays in sync. Even noise.


Experiment With Your Animation

An animation is rarely perfect the first time. If you are like me, you set your keyframes and then continually adjust and tweak them to make them look just right. Or maybe the animation is almost perfect, but you just need a little bit of wiggle to make it look realistic. That’s where Signal comes in. Continually adjust and play with your animation without resetting any keyframes.

Custom Animation Types

Signal offers tons of different animation types. Or make your own custom spline and animate exactly how you want.



Playback Control

Use Playback controls to choose how your animation loops.

Preset Animation Curves

Ton’s of useful animation preset curves to help get you started. You can even create your own!

Not Just For PSR Animations

Position, Scale, and Rotation are no brainers, but you can apply signal to ANY parameter in Cinema 4D. Need to randomize or move a parameter over time.

Signal Scripts™

Use our custom signal scripts to take control of your animation even further. Set random seeds or offset animation project wide using Signal Scripts.

Compatible with Cinema 4D Version R14 and above, including R23.

Create a Fast Dynamic Particle System Using X-Particles

“In this tutorial, I will show you how to make this dynamic animation using X-Particles and Cinema 4D.” - Nick Campbell


MAXON Cinema 4D Rock Goo

This tutorial utilizes many tools that can be helpful in creating a variety of different structures. Part 1 covers techniques for making a single volume mesh in the shape of a cluster of crystals or minerals.  Part 2 explains several different ways to cut the geometry into 2 pieces, and create and rig a mesh that has proper goo behaviors. Covered topic are joint rigging, mesh deformer, smoothing deformer, and pose morph tag.  Part 3 explains how to light, texture and animate for the final render.
