Working With the Connector to Create Spoke Beads

You And Me Academy shows how to make retro bike spoke beads in Cinema 4D using the connector object.

A new tutorial from the You And Me Academy shows how you can create and simulate an animation of spoke beads on a bike tire. The system uses the slider function of the connector object in Cinema 4D.

Connectors in Cinema 4D allow artists to constrain the movement or rotation of dynamic objects. It’s a great way to control dynamics and get them to do what you want.
