Cloth Simulation to make a basic top tutorial

Cinema 4D’s cloth sim system isn’t the most advanced in the world, but i did find a way to simulate a nice top with it. So here is a tutorial about it. I also cover how to modify cloth objects and then keep simulating them.

Actually simulating cloth on moving characters doesn’t go quite as smoothly as you can see here, but i guess it just needs more work. I’ll also try xparticles cloth sim tools some time soon.

C4D icons and their colors

Ever wanted to change the icons or the colors? Well this is how you get into it.

Download the file below, navigate into your c4d install directory, and then navigate to “resource\modules\c4dplugin\icons” and paste it there. ( make a backup of your original).

Tag Buttons

Ever wanted buttons for stuff like Protection tag, cloth or other stuff, well now you can. If you need any other buttons, just let me know and Maria will whip em up for you. ( also show her some support on her instagram page)

Also these scripts will finally allow you to create keyboard shortcuts for these tags. Which can save a lot of time if you apply protection tags regularily.

Kevin made some redshift buttons for you all, just throw them into the same folder 🙂
