Splicer TV’s Ryan Hussain shows off how you can use his Sintrix plugin in Cinema 4D which allows you to process and manipulate LiDar data.

Sintrix is a multi-streaming processor that is able to read millions of points. The plugin stores the points as a Sintrix object within Cinema 4D. The specialized object can then be used like any standard geometry.


If you need to work with LiDar data, the plugin offers a much better workflow than continually jumping back and forth between Cinema 4D and third-party LiDar software.

The LiDar data can be manipulated with any of of C4D’s toolset and you can see the results instantly in the viewport.

You can even convert a Sintrix object to thinking particles for more possibilities.
