Cinema 4D XPresso: Thinking Particles


In this series of tutorials, which offers you more than 5 hours of videos, we will go through the creation of advanced Thinking Particles effects in Cinema 4D.

SKU: xpresso-thinking-particles Categories: , , , Tags: , , ,


Thinking Particles is a node-based particle system, which has a huge power and flexibility, and uses the Cinema 4D XPresso Editor for the creation and editing of its various nodes.
In this series of tutorials, which offers you more than 5 hours of videos, we will go through the creation of advanced particles effects in Cinema 4D. Also there are several videos, that will explain how you can solve some issues using XPresso: creating Vertex maps, working with splines using Python nodes, working with Mograph-effectors etc.
This course is for Cinema 4D users who know the basics of XPresso. For those who want to expand their experience of the program, who want to extract from its functionality the maximum of opportunities.
