In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will learn how to create a destruction effects shot. Throughout these lessons we will look at the steps required to prepare and build it all from scratch within CINEMA 4D. We will start by learning the basic mathematical concepts and fundamentals that are needed to understand what we want to achieve. Along the way we will use Softimage ICE, Thinking Particles, and Dynamics in CINEMA 4D and V-Ray. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of the workflows that are required to create a detailed FX shot including particles, dynamics, and fracturing. Software required: Softimage 2012 ICE, CINEMA 4D R14, V-Ray.
