16 hours of pure X-Particles training plus 10 hours of extra training covering rendering and compositing.
Particle FX includes six chapters of great industry-relevant scenes and techniques for motion graphics, VFX and product visualisation:
Drawing with Particles
Each chapter comes with downloadable scene files so that you can dive straight in. Purchase the training today, and you can stream Particle FX on demand when logged into your customer account.
Jon Bosley, INSYDIUM’s resident particle genius, talks you through over 16 hours of pure X-Particles Training. The remaining 10 hours of extra training are dedicated to rendering & compositing. Although we use Cycles 4D as our chosen rendering tool, the techniques used are transferable to your preferred render engine.
If you don’t own Cycles 4D, you can download our FREE 14-Day Trial now. If you go on to purchase, as an X-Particles owner you get 30% discount; use coupon code XP30 at the checkout.
Jon has years of experience in the industry; you’ll learn production-proven workflow tips for ultimate organisation and efficiency. Plus, the techniques you’re shown in the scenes are transferable; you’ll be able to take what you’ve learnt and utilise them in your projects.
We recommend Cinema 4D R20 and X-Particles build 724 or above because some of the effects demonstrated use newer features, however if you have previous versions/builds (Cinema 4D R16/X-Particles 642 or above), the same effects can be achieved with alternative techniques.
We also recommend that you have Cycles 4D (build 321 or above) or other render engine and Adobe After Effects.
I highly recommend anyone using X-Particles to use it in tandem with Cycles 4D. The bridge between the two allows for some amazing effects and control over the appearance of your particle systems. Being a regular Cinema 4D user also meant that Cycles 4D was fairly easy to pick up and integrate into our workflow. - Matthew Encina Blind.com
Cycles 4d is the render engine I’ve always wanted to have as a C4D artist. It’s a feature rich engine that doesn’t ask you to change the way you work to get the render you want. You can render entirely procedurally, or with image textures. It doesn’t feel like a plug-in at all, it feels like an update. - Casey Hupke
I find this is the absolute go-to anytime that I want to do anything with particles… There are so many possibilities and great looks you can achieve with even just some really simple setups - Mike “Beeple” Winkelman
Playing with TP and Xpresso is a thing of the past for me now. - Ash Thorp
Territory use X-Particles a lot when it comes to detailed simulations for feature film UI. The ease of use means we can turn work around quickly without sacrificing a demanding quality bar - David Sheldon-Hicks / Founder and creative director / Territory Studio
Designer-friendly and technically advanced, simply powerful and art direction-able, X-Particles is an integral tool of my workflow, always impressed how Insydium are constantly developing and refining the most important toolset for Cinema 4D. - Motion Designer; Director; Brett Morris
X-Particles is an essential tool in my creative workflow - whether it be for creating daily images or commercial client projects. It allows me to quickly and intuitively throw together visual concepts or drill down into more complex, technical setups. The integrated interactive and video manual are outstanding, and if you can’t get the answers there, the support team are personal and very quick to help out. - Joey Camacho, Raw & Rendered
