How to Create a Black Hole Effect in C4D using Arnold

Daniel Danielsson shows how you can create the “Interstellar” black hole effect pretty easily in C4D.

A new tutorial from Daniel Danielsson works through creating a black hole effect with Arnold in Cinema 4D. The tutorial covers creating the gravitational lensing and the event horizon using only two simple spheres.

The effect is a simple one to recreate in 3D. It all comes down to extreme refraction settings and a Fresnel effect. “A couple of spheres and an insane variable Index of Refraction setup, then you’re done!,” Danielsson says about his tutorial.
