CINEMA 4D R13 POSE MORPH

Using this step by step approach will ensure that you have a solid foundation of weighting workflow in Cinema 4D. We start with the basics of working with Cinema 4D Deformers, looking at the object hierarchy. First we explore point level animation and examine the limitations of this technique. Caterpillar Learn how to manipulate long chains of joints by using IK Spline. This lesson expands upon this by unfolding geometry with thickness. Features covered include Joint T8ool and Parent Constraint. Unfold Cardboard In the basic weighting tutorials we explored a method of unfolding geometry using joints. You can also subscribe without commenting.

In the basic weighting tutorials we explored a method of unfolding geometry using joints. The arm is then controlled by linking custom user data to our IK chain, via Xpresso. Working with joint chains and skin deformers requires the joints to be weighted to the vertices of the mesh via the weight tag. Rolling Cube In this quick tip tutorial, we examine two separate methods of achieving the same result. Unfold Cardboard In the basic weighting tutorials we explored a method of unfolding geometry using joints. We only touch upon the power of the L-System by using a simple rule and premise to create a linear spline which grows and unfolds. Rigging is essentially a combination of techniques which could include the use of Deformers, Object Hierarchies, Constraints, Morphing and Xpresso. Finding the perfect balance of these processes and bringing them together into coherent and manageable set-ups is the key to successful rigging and animation.

Building upon the Basic IK tutorial, this lesson takes us on the next steps of building a mechanical IK rig. This process is crucial for smooth and accurate deformation. The arm is then controlled by linking custom user data to our IK chain, via Xpresso.

Deformer Basics We start with the basics of working with Cinema 4D Deformers, looking at the object hierarchy.

We build our first expression in two clicks, then open the Xpresso editor to investigate the expression that has been created. Page Turn In this feature packed lesson we expand upon our IK-Spline knowledge and build a flexible page turn rig. Features covered include Position and Aim Constraint.

This spline can then be used to create geometry which in turn can be cloned and deformed to create more complex growing objects. This lesson expands upon this by unfolding geometry with thickness. Starting with a more complex model, representative of a real world project, we examine the scene and build the suitable hierarchy for the Robotic Arm. This requires a more complex set-up as each fold must contain an adequate number of edges to create a smooth fold without collapsing or intersecting the polygons.

We then create an Xpresso set-up which allows us to 4f the spline points by linking the spline vertices to the position of null objects. Expanding on the flexible rig we have made for animating splines, we rework the object hierarchy mogph that it is simple to attach the spline to any object ensuring the spline is attached at right angles and does not intersect the object it is connected to.

Cinnema the basic rig is assembled, we add some user data combined with Xpresso to control multiple joints simultaneously to make the rig animation friendly. Cantilever Toolbox In this lesson we create a cantilever toolbox simply by using the correct object hierarchy and axis location.

We start with the basics of working with Cinema 4D Deformers, looking at the object hierarchy. Restricting the deformation by using Falloff or Vertex maps combined with the Restriction Tag.

This process cinemq several small hierarchies of joints and the weighting is once again applied manually using the weight tool. To finish up, we remove the Xpresso and use constraints to add some dynamic secondary motion to the spline for natural and realistic motion. Rigging is essentially a combination of techniques which could include the use of Deformers, Object Hierarchies, Constraints, Morphing and Xpresso.

Spline Controller Part 3 Expanding on the flexible rig we have made for animating splines, we rework the object hierarchy so that it is simple to posw the spline to any object ensuring the spline is attached at right angles and does not intersect the object it is connected to.

In this lesson we create a cantilever toolbox simply by using the correct object hierarchy and axis location. Spline Controller Part 2 Improving on the Xpresso we built in part one, we reconstruct a similar expression but this time using Xpresso to iterate through the object hierarchy.

Using a simple joint chain, we norph a basic rig for unfolding geometry and we then weight the joints manually using the weight tool. Your Name Your Email address. Lindenmeyer or L-Systems are often used for generative growth, especially for natural branching of plant and trees, the MoSpline Turtle is a complete L-System built into the MoSpline Object.

Features covered include Pose Morph Tag. Following on the from the incredibly popular learn. The CMotion Object is designed for automatically cycling parameter values, this makes it great for creating automatic motion for machines, robots and even for simple characters. We set up a simple hierarchy of objects and introduce the position and aim constraints.

In this tutorial we build a simple chain of joints which we bind to the mesh using a Skin Deformer, then we set up a Dynamic IK chain so that the joints animate automatically based on the parent movement.

Simple Piston In this session we build a very simple piston rig. Starting with a relative point morph, we then move on to discover the other point morph options, looking at Absolute and also Rotational Morphing.

Features covered include Joint T8ool and Parent Constraint. In the following four tutorials, we build a rig which allows us to animate the individual vertices of a spline.

In this quick tip tutorial, we examine two separate methods of achieving the same result. We link the rotation values of the various parts together using Xpresso and control the opening and closing of the toolbox with one slider control.
