13个必备的Cinema 4D插件

+$Maxon’s Cinema 4D has a vibrant and well-supported plugin ecosystem, providing all manner of extensions for the app – from filling holes in its toolset to streamlining the workflow. One of the最好的3D建模软件+$packages, the way Cinema 4D is structured means, not only are these plugins nicely integrated into the app (often seamlessly at times), they all play well together.

所以你可以找到Cinema 4D教程将第三方修改器和效应器与原生工具混合使用,使用Turbulence FD来对流X粒子,然后使用头发着色器对其进行可视化,使用硝化细胞粉碎网格,然后使用信号对它们进行动画处理...这些组合具有无限创意。

在这个功能中,我们已经收集了一些我们最喜欢的插件(虽然不是所有的插件!)。这里有适合每个人的东西。

+$01. Trypogen

Cinema 4D plugins: Trypogen

+$Trypogen's a bit niche but rewards experimentation+$(Image credit: The Pixel Lab)

+$Every now and then you find a plugin that doesn't offer a means to a particular end, but inspires you to investigate further nonetheless.+$Trypogen+$is one such plugin. It's a generator plugin that lets you take a simple object and create something that combines the best of mathematical-based processes with the random and organic nature of the more playful side of 3D.

+$It's a bit of a niche product, but Trypogen encourages playful experimentation and can actually yield beautiful, if unexpected, results in very little time. Combine that with its compatibility with MoGraph, and you have a very useful tool for little cost.

+$02. X-Particles

Cinema 4D plugins: X-Particles

X-Particles包括对MoGraph效应器的支持

+$This Amazing+$particle and VFX system+$has a host of useful features. You can create stimulations for cloth, smoke, fire and fluids, for example, and it integrates seamlessly into Cinema 4D. If you can use C4D, you can use X-Particles.

+$03. TurbulenceFD

Cinema 4D plugins: Turbulence FD

这个沉重的SIM卡渲染为2560 X 1600.默认设置需要46秒;通过调整设置,我们将其降低到13

TurbulenceFD+$is a voxel-based fluid dynamics simulation system for making fire and smoke. TFD is used in movies, TV shows and video game promos, and you only need to use the plugin and see the end results to agree it’s pretty special.

+$04. Light Kit Pro 3.0

Cinema 4D plugin: Light Kit Pro 3.0

Light Kit Pro 3.0拥有一系列摄影风格的灯光和支架

最新更新+$Light Kit Pro+$provides a complete and fully customisable lighting solution –  providing a variety of realistic lights, panels and softboxes with which to really hone your lighting. It's easy to use, includes 120 studio presents and has built-in support for renderers Octane, Arnold and Redshift.

+$05. Nitroblast

Nitrobast: Cinema 4D plugins

Nitroblast可以应用于动画角色

+$Lazaros, aka ‘NitroMan’, has created many useful plugins, butNitroblast+$is probably his best. This great little tool automatically shatters objects and enables you to blow them to pieces using C4D’s dynamics.

+$06. Scroll Roll Deformer

 Scroll Roll Deformer

Scroll Roll Deformer不仅可以用于铺设红地毯

滚动变形器+$was designed to help create rolling paper and carpet-like effects, says Daniel Fitzgerald, developer at Curious Animal, but he found it was also a fun way to create sprouting animations. Scroll Roll also turned out to be perfect for growing sprouting objects and growing feathers.

通过在展开时从无任何方向扩展这些对象,他能够平滑地转换它们,但是以比简单比例更有趣的方式。

+$07. Motion Stretch Deformer

Motion Stretch Deformer

使用和不使用Stretch Deformer时,可以为模型设置动画

+$The second entry from Curious Animal, aka developer Daniel Fitzgerald, is运动拉伸变形器+$. When applied to a mesh, Motion Stretch Deformer – as you might guess – stretches the geometry according to its movement, creating things like motion trails.

+$08. Signal

Signal plugin

Signal插件允许在不使用时间轴的情况下轻松地对C4D内的任何参数进行程序动画

信号+$is a GSG plugin that’s aimed at automating the animation process. It’s applied as a tag to an object or deformer and you simply drag any animatable value into it (including colours). It’s then a matter of setting some values and letting Signal do its thing, generating random, noise- based animations and seamless loops.

+$09. SplinePatch 3.0

SplinePatch Cinema 4D plugin

此图像是透明材质上SplinePatch的Solid Extrusion实例

+$As its name suggests,SplinePatch 3.0+$brings spline patching to C4D, which enables you to create smooth, curved surfaces from intersecting splines. This is ideal for creating complex forms that remain editable and animatable, such as cars, clothing, characters, packaging or other convoluted shapes.

+$10. Forester

Forester: cinema 4d plugins

应用各种纹理贴图选择的Forester岩石

福雷斯特+$is a procedural vegetation creation plugin that makes an endless variety of grass, trees and plants, and that also comes with a rock generator and a scattering function, called the Multicloner. Its latest update also integrates with C4D's Variation shader, so you can colour your leaves randomly.

11.转变

Cinema 4D plugins: Transform

变换对于使用硝化细胞破碎的物体非常有效

+$GSG’s转变+$is a neat plugin for generating animation without the need for keyframes. It provides a set of over 65 presets for various animation sequences, which can then be tweaked to suit. It works well on text, clone arrays or fractured objects made using Nitroblast.

+$12. Unfolder

Unfolder Cinema 4D plugin

通过一些聪明的解决方法,您可以缓存Unfolder的动画,以便应用其他效果

+$This Tool+$by César Vonc unwraps an object as strips of connected polygons, like peeling a banana. It’s a very cool effect with plenty of options to alter the way it unfolds and disappears. However, Vonc explains that you can’t easily cache the effect as Unfolder changes the point and polygon count by default, and the PLA cache needs them to be the same.

+$13. Difference Map

Cinema 4D plugin: Difference Map

在这里,我们使用差异贴图与好奇动物的撞击变形器在颜色通道中生成图层蒙版。

差异图+$is a handy plugin that enables you to layer effects on
通过创建描述变形器对模型中每个点的影响的顶点图来实现变形顶部。因此,如果使用“影响变形器”来创建涟漪,则可以使用“差异贴图”选项卡创建在材质中引用的顶点贴图,以使这些涟漪与对象的其余部分具有不同的颜色。
