Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling the rope, part of Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D.
- Now that we have the flagpole model,…let's go ahead and tackle the flag rope itself,…and to do that, we'll use the Sweep object.…With the Sweep object,…we're able to take two different splines…and use those to define some geometry.…So, let's start off with the spline here.…I'm going to use a rectangle spline…and just to make it easier to see,…we'll just change up the color,…say Off to On, and go ahead and leave that white.…I'm going to actually make sure,…let's turn this snapping off, let's move this off…to the side a little bit,…and let's try to get this in the ballpark…of our flagpole.…
So, we'll come over to the Object tab…and turn up our Height.…We'll just dial that up visually…and just kind of get it in the ballpark.…So, somewhere in here maybe.…If we raise this up, actually,…let's do a couple things to this Taurus here,…let's bring this Taurus down.…And now we can bring our rectangle a little lower.…
I've got my rectangle selected here…and I want to disable my X and Z movement…and now, when I have my Move tool selected,…
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.
