Curious Animal makes a bunch of really great plugins for Cinema 4D. They were also one of the first to offer a plugin subscription, making it easier to access the many useful plugins that they make. Recently, their plugin Populate received some nice updates when it turned 1.06.
Populate is a plugin that helps extend Cinema 4D’s native Mograph toolset. The idea is that you can set up your object once, and have endless variations by controlling a range of object parameters. Unique clones ban be randomly generated, or controlled with in-view falloff widgets.
The latest version now lets you use C4D’s Variance Tags, adding even more control over what is possible. A look into the new features shows squash and stretch parameters being added to populated elements, and controlling time parameters on an imported Alembic asset.
