Part of our INSYDIUM Fused Collection, X-Particles is a fully-featured advanced particle and VFX system for Maxon’s Cinema 4D. Its unique rule system of Questions and Actions enables complete control over particle simulations.
An essential component of an artist’s toolkit, X-Particles is the solution to satisfy all your particle needs: Cloth, Smoke, Fire, Fluids, Grains and Dynamics. Designers can switch effortlessly between motion graphics and VFX, within a unified system.
Create outstanding ParticleFX from Solar Systems, FUI, Holograms and medical visualizations to abstract artwork. Multiple options to combine Emitters and Modifiers, gives you a range of possibilities.Learn More
Realistic smoke, fire and explosive simulations. You can export ExplosiaFX as a VDB volume, and any render engine that can read the VDB data can then render the volume data.Learn More
Our Liquid and Grain Solvers enable you to create stunning large and small-scale fluid simulations. From gorgeous beaches, with waves and ocean spray, to beautiful product shot splashes.Learn More
Stepping closer into the realms of fully dynamic motion design, X-Particles' DynamicsFX offers the perfect solution to bend and shatter reality for amazing visual effects production.Learn More
xpFluidFLIP features a choice of fluid solvers, APIC and FLIP.
The APIC solver is fantastic at maintaining liquid momentum, preserving the natural flow that your fluids should have and can also provide a more dynamic yet very stable simulation.
xpFluidFLIP has a new collisions system which handles not only static collider objects but also fast-moving or rotating collider objects. It can interact with all other xpDynamics objects giving you endless possibilities.
xpFluidFLIP helps you create detailed, fast fluid simulations, giving you more artistic control than ever before.
xpScatter enables you to scatter your objects over multiple scene geometry, from splines to parametric objects all at the same time.
The topology tab will enable you to distribute your scatter on landscape slope, height, and curvature to create realistic ecosystems.
Animate your growth by using textures, X-Particles modifiers, and Mograph effectors.
Use multiple display modes for fast viewport performance. You can even restrict the scatter of objects to within the camera field of vision for optimal efficiency.
X-Particles is built seamlessly into Cinema 4D like it is part of the application. It’s compatible with the existing particle modifiers, object deformers, Mograph effectors, Hair module, native Thinking Particles, and works with the dynamics system in R14 and later.
If you know how to use the Mograph module, you already know how to use X-Particles, it's that easy.
X-Particles has the most advanced particle rendering solution on the market. It enables you to render particles, splines, smoke and fire, all within the Cinema 4D renderer. Included are a range of shaders for sprites, particle wet maps and skinning colors. You can even use sound to texture your objects.
Perfectly partnered with INSYDIUM’s Cycles 4D and also compatible with the following:
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
