Hi my friends,

I can't remember, but I think this is my first post in this forum. I simulate a crashtest with Cinema 4D Clothilde, so this is my result. The European Cinema 4D Clothilde Car Crashtest :-P

Its still in progress, because the next step will be, that I want to make a photo of an real empty crash platform and an HDRI of this scene so that it will look more realistic, than now.

In some pics of the video, you see some edges of polygons but I have a slow computer with 1,6 GHz, so the calculation needed much time of the crash. So I think I decided a good part of speedness and quality of crashing the car.

Quicktime Video Sorenson Codec (1 MB): http://www.4dchannel.de/galerie/bilder/tests/crashtest/movie.mov (http://www.4dchannel.de/galerie/bilder/tests/crashtest/movie.mov)


Windows Media Player DivX Codec (1 MB): http://www.4dchannel.de/galerie/bilder/tests/crashtest/movie.av (http://www.4dchannel.de/galerie/bilder/tests/crashtest/movie.avi)


I hope, my english is not too bad. *GRIN* Yeah, the standard of german schools :-P

Can someone open the video? A friend told me, both videos are corrupted! Hmm... on my computer is everything all right. At you?

I was able to open/view both videos... I'm on Windows XP64, though I do have the DivX codec installed. Don't think I have anything special besides the latest quicktime (just released that both actually works on XP64 and doesn't crash windows).

It looks pretty good... if I had any crits, I'd say that you can tell that the cloth enters the "barrier" and particularly when it comes back out the AO makes it sortof pop, but I was watching it pretty closely :) It's not bad at all. I don't know that the metal would crunch up into nothingness quite like that, but I haven't watched a lot of car crash videos, either.

But not bad! If you get the environment looking better, it would definitely improve the overall feel. Clothilde can be used for some pretty good car crashes, I know of one other video that used that technique but I don't think it was ever released to the public.

Nice to hear that.


Well, you are right. Some parts of the crash are not the best one. But I have to choose:
Quality or Speed.. This is the think, I meant in the first thread.

And that some parts of the metal enters the barrier, thats right. There are much more things I have to correct because Clothhilde is no real Crashsimulation, how you know.

But when I let the car crash against the barrier a few centimeters far right so that the metal don't enter the barrier.. urgx... It looks like.. I don`t know. It not seems to be, that the car deforms itself on the barrier. Perhaps I try to crash the same car with more polygons on a faster Computer. Perhaps its more realistic.

Hi I was able to open and view both videos, too. (Win 32 bit)

I like the use of Clothhilde you made. I like also the result. :thumbsup:

Everithing is perfectable.. you found a good compromise. :)

Im missing debris flying around during and after the impact. Also the airbag needs to deflate. An airbag starts to deflate from the moment its all inflated, so the face doesnt hit a hard ball, but a nice and soft "pillow".
But elsewise it was stunning! Good work man! :D

Well, I think this is my final video.
When I have the chance to take some pictures of a real crash plattform I work further. So dear my CG Friends :) Thanks for posts..
