( / ) C4D TUTORIAL – Infinite Blooming Flower

Part one of the Alien Flower tutorial series – on how to create & animate a growing and infinitely blooming flower in Cinema 4D.

In Parte Uno we create and animate the flower petals, clone those into a flower shape, time offset them to make it bloom. Then we shade the flower and loop the animation.

00:33 – Creating the flower petals
02:42 – Animating the flower petals
06:24 – Cloning the petals into shape
07:09 – Using time-offset to form the Flower Shape
08:39 – Adding dynamics and thickness to the flower
11:15 – Shading the flower
14:49 – Looping the animation

Tony Mirow says:

Hi, thank you again for this amazing tutorial, really professional !!! However, I need your help it’s possible? After 50 frame, the edges of the petals go through the other one. It’s not ugly and not really visible with the animation, but it’s not perfect as your? I thank that it was the cloner, but I made it again step by step and I have always the same problem? Thank!

Dear Daniel,

I was just checking your website and found this rose on the project you did “The X” and I felt I have seen the tutorial somewhere and came here to check in Youtube and didn’t know it was by you yourself! I also found it amazing that you also made the music for “About Time” ! You are extremely talented and I look forward to your talk and meeting you on the 10th of July! –
