C4D Christmas Tree – Cinema 4D Tutorial (Free Project)

Today we’ll be creating this animated Christmas Tree in Cinema 4D! We’ll be using dynamics in C4D to build an Xmas tree out of Christmas baubles.

You can also download the free project file for this tutorial and use it in your own motion graphics work or in your Xmas messages to friends, family or clients! Let me know if you found it useful!

If you’ve learnt any new skills in Cinema 4D this year, especially from one of our tutorials, we’d love to see some of your art in our Monthly Challenge! There’s still 10 days left to get involved!
More info here: http://bit.ly/2LeJfhN

Have an epic Christmas and New Years and we’ll be back in 2019 with new tutorials and a few new surprises!

Thanks again for the support in 2018, bring on 2019!!

ArgoBeats says:

Great stuff, Dave! I’m wondering if you need the Cloner? If you make your sphere child of Emitter and turn ON “Show Objects” it’d work, even with the Dynamics tag applied straight to the Emitter

Hello Bro, tank you for tutorial, did you used dynamic tag for Star at up?

Hakim says:
