How to Make a Floating Body Rig With Xpresso and Python in C4D

Expresso Mechanic TV shows how to use Xpresso and Python to control a character’s limbs in a floating body rig.

This new Cinema 4D Xpresso tutorial from Expresso Mechanic TV shows how to rig a character so Xpresso and Python control the motion of the limbs. Julian shows how to create random motion that you can easily loop without using traditional keyframes.

“Using the noise or the Vibrate Tag is impossible,” Julian notes, “so we must create a workaround using Xpresso and a little Python. We will also use a slight variation of the rig to create a holographic display animation.”
