[C4D] Smoke around object
This tutorial learn how to create smoke effect around of object using the Pyrocluster with mograph's matrix object
Step 1. Create a nurbs spline, create add a cube object (just for example), then add an align to spline tag from the tag menu under Cinema 4D tags. Drag and drop your spline into the spline path parameter, click on tagential to have the cube rotate along the path
Duplicate your spline curve then move it over a bit, now rename this curve Spline Rail Path. Then drag and drop it into the Rail Path value box. This helps with some of the rotation and alignment of object head
Step 2. Now go to 0s set the position in the tag to 0 then right click and select Animation > Add Keyframe. Now go to 10s and set the posiiton to 100% then right click and add another keyframe
Step 3. Add a Matrix object from the Mograph menu Set it to Object Mode and edit setting parameter like follow
Now, time to start the smoke effect,
Step 4. Create a TP Particle Geometry set the appropriate groups for both the Matrix and the Particle Geometry(should probably just be set to all)
Step 5. Create a Pyrocluster Shader and a Pyrocluster Volume Tracer (File > Shader > Pyrocluster and Pyrocluster-Volume Tracer). Create an environment object, drop the Volume Tracer on that, and the pyrocluster material on the Particle Geometry
Step 6. Now select The Matrix object in objects manager then add a random effector from the Mograph menu and edit setting parameter like follow
Step 7. That's it...hit play and you will see it
This is the result (swf format)
and another variation with different settings (swf format)
Add a Tracer object from the Mograph menu. Drag and drop your cube object into the Trace Link parameter, then uncheck Trace Vertices. Select the Matrix object then drag and drop your trace object into the object parameter in attributes manager and set the setting parameter like follow
