Equiloud shows how to use the Volume Builder & Mesher in C4D to animate and reveal layers in an object.

The volume building workflow in Cinema 4D is a freeing experience. It allows you to create complex objects by working intuitively with shapes. It is also an excellent workflow for animation too. Check out this new tutorial from Uwe Schweer-Lambers, who shows how to animate holes in an object that reveal colorful layers inside.

The tutorial covers working with the Volume Builder and Volume Mesher in C4D R20 and up. Get the scene files for the tutorial here. In a similar tutorial, Schweer-Lambers shows how to create a boiling effect using an animated volume builder object.
