Suggested for this Experiment
  • Landscape
  • Explosion FX

For Experiment 5 I used the Cinema 4D Landscape object with Explosion FX Deformer. I went for a low poly look but you may come up with something completely different. Take at least 30 minutes and see what you can create. The focus here is Landscape and Explosion FX but feel free to do some compositing in After Effects. Cinema 4D Lite users can also join in on this one, although it’s quite a slow render via Cineware. When you’re done, save a JPG and post it in the comments. The file could probably do with some optimisation so if you work out ways to speed it up let me know!

    Well here is my take… took more than 30 this time around just due to getting myself use to Cinema again (my job is vanilla so it wears my skill set down). I did use Jon’s glass and lights since I am still getting use to lighting in Cinema.

    I love the happy accident of the three monoliths I got from my deformer.

        Thanks Jon. I apologize I should have looked the PNG settings before uploading.

    Haven’t messed much with Cinema 4d Lately so wanted to play with this since I have not really used either of these very much. This reminded me of Kryptonite. Thanks for the experiment John.

    Fun. Don’t use DOF in C4D much but time being a factor, went ahead with it rather than external compositing.
    Camera placement took most of the time here.

      I always get a better result doing DOF directly in Cinema and do it that way whenever possible.

        Thanks John. That’s good to hear as I found the results to be very good. Lots of DOF messing for me this week.

    Added a little fog to make it feel more complete. Still all landscapes though!

      I really like this Brandon, how did you add the fog?

        A little late on this reply, but I just used the physical sky fog panel. I’ve attached an image of the settings.

    Got kind of a dimensional portal opening feel, no?
