Fully exchange, manipulate and combine particle data from every place within X-Particles. Use the Data Mapping tab in each X-Particles modifier to access particle attributes like texture, brightness, speed or temperature, giving a totally new level of control.
The three essential driving forces behind X-Particles simulations; Dynamics – bringing life to your particles, Generators – creating geometry, splines and volumes and Modifiers – to control and manipulate your particles behaviour.
A wide range of Dynamic modules from Constraints to Fluids and Fire means you can add life to your particles, replicating realistic physical particle behaviour. Our interactive tools are intuitive, combining a whole host of X-Particles effects using multi-threaded options leaving you with unlimited possibilities and the ability to create caches for the production pipeline.
Generate fast and stable geometry and Splines from particles. Attach your animated models to create realistic cache ready simulations. X-Particles comes with Particle Color support, plus OpenVDB Support for industry standard meshing.
A wide range of modifiers enables you to create exceptional effects, with a simple and intuitive workflow aided by effect stacking. Multi-threaded options and a unique and straightforward system of Questions and Actions means you have full control of your particles. Plus, Datamapping from particle information and complete Field Support.
xpQuickTools are a collection of X-Particles presets to speed up your workflow within Cinema 4D. Repeatable tasks like setting up particle emission from textures, trail branching or creating smoke and fire are now possible with just a single click!
Particle FX: Emission from various sources, Fireworks, Dust, Rain and Snow.
Fluids & Grains: Condensation, Fluid Filaments, FluidFX Water Body.
Smoke, Fire & Advection: Basic Flame & Smoke, Camp Fire, Fire from Particles.
Trails: Create Branches, Nearest by Distance, Network Trails, Tendrils.
Workflow: Quick Cache, Assign Groups to Modifiers, System Sort.
Streamlined workflow for meshing using our filtering system, means you can layer up your effects, generate smooth flowing surfaces, remesh geometry objects or create complex models. OpenVDB enables you to entirely art direct meshes; you can take total control of your artwork.
X-Particles uses a unique system of Questions and Actions giving you full control over your particle simulations without the need for Xpresso or Cinema 4D’s native particle system. Bring your simulations to life with easy to use tools for everything from particle life, size, age, color and much more. You can edit particles and set groups, giving you complete control.
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
