creating a balloon arch

I need help! I'm new to C4D. I'm using R13 Studio, so no fancy mograph and things. I have managed to create a twisted tower of balloons but cannot figure out how to arch them. Any ideas? Am I approaching it wrong? I've created a ring of balloons and then duplicated them with some rotation but as I said at the moment its just a tower.

R 13 mograph is identical with R14. So why not use a cloner with a helix spline for this?

A spline and a sphere with mograph and random effector
should give you what you want. A collider would keep the
spheres from intersecting each other.

If you have no MoGraph (but you have Studio version ???) follow these steps!

Under ->C4D menue -> Tools --- you find the "arrange objects" tab:

1_Duplicate the ballon
2_Arrange on Spline

Thanks! I don't have mograph but figured it out in the end.

You must not have the Studio version then, because it comes with Mograph.

Glad you got it sorted though.
