Hello EJ! Thank you for the tutorial! I have a problem to let the second bubble pass through the tube. Right now, I have made keyframes on enable the Dynamics, however, it stuck in the middle of the tube.

Drew Nix says:

This was awesome. Enjoyed the bubble sound fx. LOL

gregkrazanski says:

looks sweet. just for education’s sake, it’s pronounced “flek-shun” like to mean “amount of flex”, not “flek-see-on”

Laissez - faire says:

And is it possible to use the spline rig method to make the wrist connect with the Palm that connects to the fingers? I tried using your ik spline method separately with the wrist hand and fingers but the capsule objects don’t connect…I don’t know if there’s a constraint or a tag or snap tool method to keep the fingers intact with the hand

Hi, EJ! Watching your tutorials all day long – it’s awsome! The best!
Is there any way to render cartoon styled animation(like your LemonGuy) very very fast? Maybe using R19 Hardware Rendering?
I mean not photorealistic, but good enough for production? It’s possible?

Jamie Barron says:

Hi EJ — Great stuff here. Question: If you were going to do 100’s or 1000’s of bubbles would you do this the same way or is there a smart way to scale this technique for many bubbles?

I typically avoid softbodies, for it’s one of the easier ways to crash CInema4d.
This is really great though!
