Create Growing Snowflakes in Cinema 4D With Volume Tools

Daniel Danielsson shows how to create an animation of a snowflake materializing in C4D using the Volume Builder tools and more.

This new tutorial from Daniel Danielsson shows how to animate a growing snowflake in Cinema 4D using the Volume Builder toolset to handle parts of the effect.

The snowflake starts as an image texture, and the C4D Displacer will give it some depth in the scene. The Volume Builder tools allow you to turn the displaced object into a 3D one. The growth of the snowflake uses a cloner object with a spline and a sweep Nurbs object.
