Cinema 4D | Creating and Rendering a Ball of Yarn

Using cinema 4D’s hair module, Stephan G offers a look at creating and rendering something that is winter related, a realistically rendered ball of yarn or wool. The C4D Cloner makes short work of modeling the yarn ball by cloning a simple torus shape with the random deformer, taking care of creating the major strands of yarn in a ball shape pretty quickly.

Using the free Rope shader from Simon Fiedler to create the texture for the yarn, Stephan shows how to create realistic materials for the render. Stephan also shows how to use the mesh deformer and softBody deformations to add a bit of animation.
