Happy Holidays everyone!
I hope you’re all finding time to rest and recharge your creative energies. For today’s tutorial, we’ll learn how to animate a spline with the Plain Effector and MoSpline. It’s a great tutorial with a fundamental building block in animation.
I hope you all enjoy a safe Festive Season, I’m looking forward to sharing more Cinema 4D goodness with you in 2012 (if the Mayan’s aren’t right ;-))

I’m proud to announce that my third tutorial is live on the Motionworks website.
In this video I explore the dynamic set up of pinball bumpers, using xPresso and dynamics.
Complete with lighting, sound and animation of the bumpers, this tutorial with introduce you to the endless possibilities xPresso and Cinema 4D can offer you.
The scene files and sound-fx for this tutorial are available for download on the Motionworks site.
As always, feel free to post your comments below!

Ah pinball, game of champions and beer drinkers…
In this tutorial we’ll be covering the set up of a pinball bumper with dynamic sound, bump action and lighting effects through xpresso.
It’s a great intro into the world of xpresso and who knows, it might inspire you to build the rest of the machine!
This tutorial will be hosted over at Motionworks, so keep an eye out for it!
Here we cover how to create two domino set ups. One being cloning dominoes over a spline and the other setting up large areas and shading them to create dynamic visuals. I also show you how to adjust the direction of the clones according to the type of animation you want.
Feel free to experiment with the two methods and post your creations below!
So I finally got around to recording my first C4D, tutorial… In this tutorial we’ll cover an easy technique to create an ink splat using a cloner and metaballs.
If anyone has improvements to this tutorial or would like to showcase their results, feel free to share it with us and get some airtime while you’re at it.
Also, if there’s anything that’s been racking your brain about Cinema 4D, let me know, I’ll make it a personal mission on mine to find the solution and share it with you.
Hope you all enjoy the tut!
Ps, the HDRI texture in the tut is freely available compliments of Greyscale Gorilla, definately check out his great work.
