Use CINEMA 4D as Poor Man’s Chrono Sculptor

Use CINEMA 4D as Poor Man’s Chrono Sculptor

February 11, 2014

Yader (aka Derya Öztürk) explains how to get a ChronoSculpt like workflow in CINEMA 4D. Very clever! LightWave ChronoSculpt from NewTek is a new standalone product that “revolutionizes working with animation and dynamic simulation cache files from any application by allowing you to use sculpting and transformation tools over time. ChronoSculpt also introduces a radical new geometry engine based on our 'Hydra' technology which allows the deformation and manipulation of 8 to 10 million polygon objects with ease.”

Yader gives a short demo on how you can bring this type of feature into CINEMA 4D using the Rate option on the Matrix Object and the Morph Motion Effect on the Inheritance Object. There's more to it but you'll have to watch the tutorial!
