vacuum rig cinema 4d tutorial

Vacuum Rigging- Cinema4D tutorial

Got this question about rigging a vacuum from Joey https://instagram.com/joey_g_motion So here is the solution i came up with. The hand still can detach if you pull the vacuum too far, perhaps if people are interested i can make a part 2 and figure out how to limit the distance of the vacum, but in reality i think thats a waste of calculations that you computer has to do, when you can just make sure the vacum doesn’t go further than needed while animating.

6 step guide on how to ask for help.

I have recently been receiving a lot of messages asking for help. And generally i’m a helpful guy, i answer questions, make tutorials etc.

But more and more i’m getting the following messages, and they are all the same. First the person asks me how i am and then asks me to explain something that could be googled. So i decided i need to write a little tutorial on how to ask people for help.

So first Example of how not to ask for help:

The next one is slightly better, because at least he tells me what he wants and doesn’t waste my time with small talk.

But they are both bad, and i don’t really want to answer them. The thing is there are people who message me randomly out of the blue and i answer and help them, and have been over the course of many years. Some even pay me when they can, have a lot of good long term relation ships springing from just people asking me questions. But these people seem to be just lazy and just want me to do their work for them.

So… How should you ask a question that i would want to answer?

  1. Google your question.
  2. Try using what you found to make something
  3. Ask the question on a forum like c4dcafe.com Or a cinema4d facebook group, or twitter or cinema 4d slack/discord channel.
  4. Try make something
  5. Now if you still haven’t figured something out, you can show me what you made with a screen shot( and maybe a link to your file hosted of wetransfer.com) and ask me what you can’t figure out. And i will most likely make a tutorial about it.
  6. It doesn’t really matter where you are from, or what you do for work or how old are you 🙂 I don’t understand why people keep writing this..

Obviously if you’ve purchased one of my products and have a problem with it feel free to reach out, or if you’ve downloaded one of my free rigs and it’s not working correctly, don’t be shy and message me about it 🙂

Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Aleksey

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.

Looking for a way to attach clothes to characters without using the cloth simualtion? Here is a handy video about that:

 

 

 

A good way to stick clothes to a character if you don’t want to simulate them after you made them can be found here : https://ace5studios.com/surface-deformer/
