Creating Beautiful Webbed Structures with Strands in C4D

Inspired by cobwebs, Charles Rowland set out to recreate the spiderwebbing he had noticed in his basement. Here, he provides a general overview for creating abstract structures using strands derived from particles.

In this case, Charles is using X-Particles in Cinema 4D which facilitated the strands and to complete the look. However, you could probably pull this off with any particle emitters. In actuality, Charles used a technique he noticed in In Life Thrill’s Mastering Arnold for Cinema 4D. This is why the tutorial uses Arnold for rendering. Again, you could likely use any renderer that you feel comfortable with.
