C4D: Using Dynamic IK for Animating a Group of Tentacles

C4D: Using Dynamic IK for Animating a Group of Tentacles

Pryce Duncalf has a silent tip video showing how to use Dynamic IK to move a group of tentacles in Cinema 4d.

Found via Lesterbanks.  See his blog for other great tips and tutorials.  Thanks for sharing.

C4D Silent tip 8: part1- IK dynamics from Pryce Duncalf on Vimeo.

Pryce states, “In this silent tip I use the standard particle effectors to animate a dynamic IK chain of joints. This is a really useful little trick for animating things like tentacles.”

 

C4D Silent tip 8: part2 – tag iterator from Pryce Duncalf on Vimeo.

Pryce states, “This tip uses: Joints, IK, SP turbulence, SP wind, Skin, Loft, xpresso, hierarchy iterator node, object index node, tag node.  Here the hierarchy iterator is used to apply user data across a group of objects with the same tag using the tag node. The iterators are tricky to grasp, but they are extremely powerful and can save a lot of time when creating rigs of any sort.”
