v1.3 Think Particle Cloud Generator

Think Particle Cloud Generator
Think Particle Cloud Generator

Quickly and easily generate beautiful pyrocluster clouds for renderings or animations.

This fast and versatile Xpresso preset uses Thinking Particles and Mograph.


The Think Particle – Cloud Generator is an Xpresso preset built to generate pyrocluster clouds quickly and easily. It works with Mograph effectors and Thinking Particle Dynamics. We have built in wind, gravity, turbulence, collisions, and more.

Version 1.3 also has a new tool that allows you to render and sculpt clouds with Turbulence FD from http://www.jawset.com/ instead of using the slower, native pyrocluster option built into Cinema 4D.

With version 1.2, you now can create clouds on surfaces and splines, as well as volumes (the original method). You have new Thinking Particle dynamic controls as well as a handy proxy setting for rendering. Version 1.2 comes complete with 10 material presets, 4 example scenes, 2 lighting rigs, and 1 Think Particle Cloud Generator.

This tool requires MAXON CINEMA 4D Studio with Mograph and Thinking Particles, and was built in R14 but should work as far back as R12 at least.

Requires an active license of Turbulence FD to use the Turbulence FD features.
