creativMotion has been posting some really great stuff, essentially giving technical explanations for each node in C4D’s Xpresso environment, and offering practical examples for them.

Learn how to use this node by setting up a simple practical example

Not only is this a great way to learn how to incorporate these Xpresso nodes in your own work, but creativMotion also walks through how to recreate each node’s functionality with Python scripting.

This round, there is a look at the Collision Node in Cinema 4D, which covers the technical explanation of how the Collision Node works, and how you can use it in your own work.

There is also a bit about recreating the Collision Node’s functionality with Python, and the video also walks through calculating the distance vector by subtracting two offset vectors.
