In the Red Zone project, Kevin demonstrates how to add an inverse kinematics rig to a robot arm. He also shows how to add secondary animation via Xpresso and the Jiggle Deformer.

Cake utilized a domino theme for Fantasy Zone, and Kevin shows how to animate dominoes first via Cinema 4D's Rigid-Body Dynamics, and then via the MoGraph Inheritance Effector. He also shows how to uniquely texture and control the dominoes using MoGraph's MultiShader and MoGraph Selection Sets. Finally, Kevin shows how Xpresso can be used to link the position of an object to a specific clone.
