How to Have Paper Float on Air in Cinema 4D

Glenn Frey shows how easy it is to have paper float in the breeze with a simple setting change.

Cinema 4D has a simple and easy to use dynamics system. Time and time again, we’ve seen things like tutorials for rigid body and soft body simulations, so it’s easy to forget that C4D can do aerodynamics type of effects too. If you want to make paper float around on air, it’s easy to use a soft body with some setting changes.

With the latest quick tip tutorial, Maxon’s Glenn Frey shows how you can create the paper in the wind effect by changing a setting in the dynamics tag. The aerodynamic forces come as new features in C4D R14, and you can use them with all kinds of things from paper airplanes to kites, to having paper float on air.
