Procedural Growth Part 1


In this tutorial, we'll recreate the procedural growth coral scene from the X-Particles reel. Techniques we'll work through include:

  • Using the Cellular Automata generator to create the particle growth system.
  • Implementing particle data mapping to dynamically size our particles.
  • Integrating our X-Particles system with the Cinema 4D mograph system.
  • Creating an xpExplosiaFX smoke and fire simulation to advect dust particles.
  • Caching the scene. 
  • Setting up a simple camera move.
