Daniel Mozbäuchel shares a little Xpresso Rig got Cinema 4D that mimics modo’s falloff modeling system. Most of the tools in modo can be affected by a falloff setting that will allow you to attenuate the tools influence on the object.
This free to download Xpresso rig will kind of do the same thing in Cinema 4D. You can create a falloff using the curves, and then use the transform tools in C4D as you normally would. There is a few things to set up before it all works correctly, but it will do in a pinch.
