Shattery 2

Once again just playing with the xplode plugin. And dynamics. I love just playing with something in C4D, and then setting it all in motion via dynamics, then picking a point in time to freeze. Shattery 2

XMBC Logo Drop

More Xplode and dynamics. not sure why I even put this up.

XBMC Landscape 02

I needed to replace a screen background for the Aeon Nox 3 skin for the new XBMC 11 Eden release.  Well, I didn’t need too, but I didn’t like the options presented. Anyhow, using the Xplode plug-in for C4D and dynamics, I was able to create this kind Tron/Superman’s Fortress of Solitude landcape. The TV model comes from The Pixel Lab and is one of their freebie models.

Landscape Experiments

I recently purchased the Xplode plugin for Cinema 4D and have been playing with it quite a bit. This is the result of Xploded a large cube right down the middle, applying dynamics to the pieces and then letting them fall on carefully placed plates in order to create a rocky valley. I also scattered a bunch of smaller Xploded bits around to add in more random rocks. Who knows, maybe I’ll make a tutorial on how I did it.
