Introduction to the X-Particles Skinner

Introduction to the X-Particles Skinner

June 23, 2014

Mike Batchelor's quick start guide to the Skinner.  The skinner features a powerful mesher object that can use several particle sources: X-Particles, standard CINEMA 4D emitter, Thinking Particles. It can also use scene objects, completely replacing the CINEMA 4D metaball, to work in conjunction with the fluid system.

Intro to the X-Particles Emitter

Intro to the X-Particles Emitter

June 23, 2014

The screaming fast emitter in X-Particles allows for an unbelievable maximum particle count of 1 billion particles! Some of the features are covered in tutorials below are:

  • fluid simulation with wet map generation
  • multiphysics constraints
  • collision engine

Mike Batchelor of slouchcorp.com is an expert in X-Particles so you'll be seeing his name here a lot. He does tutorials on his own and for INSYDIUM LTD, the maker of X-Particles. He put together six basic quick start guides on some of the X-Particles features to get you started with X-Particles.

First Steps In Krakatoa For CINEMA 4D

First Steps In Krakatoa For CINEMA 4D

April 22, 2014

The team at Thinkbox walks you through how to access Krakatoa in CINEMA 4D for the first time. This tutorial is basic introduction to volumetric particle rendering, demonstrating the creation, lighting and rendering of half a million particles using a simple Sphere primitive and the Krakatoa PRT Volume object. This tutorial covers where the plug-ins are located in CINEMA 4D, how to render a simple spherical point cloud, and how to replace the sphere mesh with a figure. This should kickstart your Krakatoa projects in a hurry!
