Stormz shows how to create an effect where leaves blow in the wind using Cinema 4D, X-Particles and Redshift.
It seems that the motion graphics industry standardized pretty quickly on a set number of tools. Some of these are Cinema 4D, redshift, Octane, and X-Particles. A tutorial author who is known online as “Stormz” posts a look at using C4D, Redshift, and X-Particles to create a leaves effect where they blow in the wind realistically.
X-Particles is an excellent addition to a motion artist’s toolset, having particle instancing, advanced simulations and collision tools. Some of those features shine in this tutorial working with instanced geometry, forces and collisions.
