Cinema 4D Matrix Pyrocluster Particles tutorial

Hi folk

I made a new turorial for you, here is the content description:

The System Description: A CLOUD The first chapter demonstrates all techniques and setups we will need and its split it into two main parts. The first part explains exactly how the Matrix object works as a Thinking particle generator, how to use Mograph effectors, CINEMA 4D deformers and how to setup the Pyrocluster effect as well. The second part of the chapter is dedicated to the first hero of the lesson. We will learn how to build a perfect looking cloud shape from any source/base shape you like. It will have a car shape on our example, but you can generate your own. The toolset workflow will be the same. The Matrix object will be the most important object of the setup as it will generate Thinking particles and this particle cloud will be visualized by the PyroCluster effect.

The Main Hero Of The Lesson: A TORNADO The second chapter is much more complex. It's a nice looking tornado effect generated with a C4D particle emitter, Matrix, deformers, and Thinking particles generated by Matrix and Pyrocluster. You will learn how to build a complex volumetric system and combine many effects and features together. With particle system simulations, you may want to see a static frame many iterations deep. For example you may want to see the state of the effect 1000 frames into the simulation. I will teach you a very clever method to achieve this without having to watch every frame render.

Rigging And Outro The last chapter demonstrates how to rig the tornado system and how to animate it. The animation itself is based on a deformer approach, but we will show how to adjust the deformer influence by a simple XPresso setup as well. The end of the chapter describes a special simple deformer created that is able to control the tornado system effectively.
