The pretty amazing Philipp Pavlov (Trapcode Planet) posts a little walkthrough for recreating an effect that inspired him from Danil Krivoruchko.

I found pretty cool setup in XSI and i tryed to recreate this in cinema 4d -I used cloner with shader effector on it

Philipp notes that the original idea was created in Softimage ICE using particles for a post 2d video effect. Check out the post for Philipp Pavlov’s Quick Tip Creating mosaic 2D video post effects using shader effector in Cinema 4D here.
