The Basics of Fracture and Dynamics in C4D

Learn how to fracture 3D objects and buildings using Thraussi and destroy, implode, or knock over buildings using dynamics in Cinema 4D


Sean Frangella has a look at creating fractures in geometry in Cinema 4D, and offers a beginner’s look at using rigid body dynamics to create a destruction effect.

Sean walks through using the freely available Traussi from Nitro 4D, which can make short work of cutting and slicing models and breaking them apart, and covers setting up the dynamics using invisible colluder body dynamics.
