See the power of Volumes and Fields in Cinema 4D R20 in the live Siggraph 2018 presentation from Thanassis Pozantsis (aka Noseman). You’ll see every step as Thanassis builds 4 examples from scratch using the OpenVDB Volume workflow and Fields within both MoGraph and Deformers. You’ll see how to create an urchin or cellular shape easily with Volumes and Hair - a great technique for science and medical visualization. You’ll also see how to grow and fill text with liquid using the Freeze field, and how to visualize a bullet through gel using Volumes and a Tracer. Thanassis also creates an elaborate yet elegant rig for boiling bubbles by combining the power of Volumes and Fields, using the Time field in particular to animate the effect.
