Uwe Schweer-Lambers (Equiloud) shows a technique for creating animated ribbons in Cinema 4D, simplifying the animation process using Cinema’s MoGraph tools.

How to create simple animated ribbons with MoGraph

Equiloud shows how to use Cinema’s MoGraph Cloner, a MoGraph Tracer, a Random Effector and Sweep NURBS to put together to easily animate a ribbon like object around a sphere.

Equiloud notes that this technique can be useful for any type of swarm or flocking animation, and not just ribbons. Check out the tutorial for Animating Ribbons in Cinema 4D MoGraph Here.
