Have a Paint Roller Actually Lay Down Paint in C4D

Niko Schatz Shows How to Create an Animated Paint Roller in Cinema 4D.

Answering a question from one of his viewers, C4D Artist Niko Schatz breaks down how to create an animated paint roller, attempting to solve how Friedrich Neumann may have put together his Ghost Floor-Painter piece. Check out the original by Friedrich Neumann below.

Schatz covers everything including modeling, texturing and setting up the paint sequence using a bit of Xpresso, C4D’s node-based expression language to make simple connections for the objects in the scene. In all, it’s not too complicated, but a great way to pick up some tips in a lot of different areas if you are a novice C4D user.
