Tired of your splines NOT bouncing off of objects?

Ricochet is a spline that bounces off surfaces like a laser, from completely filling the volume of your model with hundreds of thousands of bounces, to wrapping around and around your objects, or simply detecting collisions from any distance. Ricochet precalculates its entire path, so there is no need to guess where it will end up or wait for the timeline to play every frame. It’s like a particle system without the particles.

After a combined 20 years of experience on the front lines designing & developing plugins for Cinema 4D, the team at Rocket Lasso is excited to announce their second plugin for Cinema 4D.
