Over 26 hours of Premium Training created by INSYDIUM's particle genius and particle FX Trainer, Jon Bosley. Particle FX is broken down into over 16 hours of pure X-Particles training.
Plus, 10 hours of additional free training covering rendering and compositing. This streaming only training is a must-have learning tool.
This scene-based series is suitable for customers with basic particle knowledge; the chapters flow with logical progression. Intermediate level and advanced X-Particles users will benefit from the in-depth level of detail throughout the series.
We replicate everyday production workflows by combining the power of the X-Particles system with native Cinema 4D tools like Deformers, Effectors and XPresso. The techniques you’ll learn in the scenes are transferable; you’ll be able to take what you’ve learnt and utilise them in your personal projects.
Purchase the training and you can stream Particle FX on demand when logged into your customer account.
Particle FX includes six great industry relevant scenes and techniques for motion graphics, VFX and product visualisation. Each chapter comes with downloadable scene files so that you can dive straight in.
Drawing with Particles
The recommended software requirements for the Premium Training videos are Cinema 4D R20 and X-Particles build 724 or above. If you use Cycles 4D, we recommend build 321 or above.
You’ll learn production-proven workflow tips for ultimate organisation and efficiency. Develop precise control over scenes and simulations, including the use of Questions and Actions, Groups and Data Mapping. Plus, you’ll learn how to create flexible rigs to allow artistic control of complex simulations.

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
