RenderReady Al Heck is back with hair… on his head that is. Al looks at re-creating a part of a motion graphics piece created by Alexander Grinke for MBC2 where text inflates like a balloon and then explodes, affecting the other text around it.

“In this tutorial, we imitate some promos for MBC2 that was originally created by a motion graphic artist named Alexander Grinke. This promo had a letter inflate then explode like a balloon. To do this, we will use a combination of rigid body dynamics, soft body dynamics, cloth and tear simulations to replicate the effect. It’s actually quite simple and a lot of fun to do. Please check it out and view the end of this tutorial to see how the final product came out. Also, please remember that this was built in R12, so prior versions of C4D cannot read the starter or finished files. Enjoy”
