Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating low-res colliders, part of Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D.
- Cloth simulations in general are CPU intensive,…so anything we can do to minimize that is always…in our favor.…We have this logo master, which is comprised of…a lot of geometry.…If we lowered the resolution of this geometry,…it's going to help speed up our simulation, in general.…So, in order to create that low resolution geometry…that will act as a collider for the cloth, let's go ahead…and look at using the polygon pen tool.…So, with my logo master, I'm going to use this…as a reference.…I'm going to minimize this.…
And we'll step into our front view, F4 on the keyboard.…And let's go ahead and switch over to the polygon pen tool…by going to Mesh, Create Tools, Polygon Pen.…It's going to put us in Point mode.…I like to use this in Edge mode.…And what I want to do is create a simplified outline…of this logo.…So, I'm going to start down here.…I'm going to click and click again, and that's going…to create an edge.…Hold down Command and hover over that edge.…You can click and drag and pull out a polygon.…
You can hover over each individual point or edge…
Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D is a project-based learning experience that follows three projects from start to finish: an animated flag blowing in the wind, opening and closing theater curtains, and a cloth-on-object logo reveal. Each project is rich with lessons that artists can adapt and apply to any cloth animation. Author Alan Demafiles will help viewers use the C4D Cloth tag and colliders, attach cloth to other geometry in a scene, loop simulations, correct imperfections with the morph deformer, and apply logos and other patterns to fabric. Start watching to incorporate cloth simulations into your mograph skillset.
