Was wondering if anyone had a idea on how this effect was created in C4D? I was trying a voronoi, matrix, and volume mesher…...can’t get the sections close enough (without having the mesh combine into the next one) and smooth.

Animated reference here:

any ideas??

My scene file is here:

Hi joshua.howard,

Thanks for the file and information, as well as using Dropbox.

Here is an example (well, two variations)

You might adjust the smoothness, add Dilate Erode, or just change the Voronoi Fracture> Offset Fragments.

All the best

P.S.: one more

Amazing!
Thank you. And thank you for taking the time to upload the file. This makes sense now!

Thanks again Dr.Sassi!

Hello!

I took your file that you shared and added a different sculpture to it.

is it possible to have theses drippy rings loop?
There are 9 matrix objects that all have different offsets.
I don’t know if this would be possible.

Thank you!

Hi joshua.howard,

Thanks for the File and for using Dropbox.

All Matrix> Loops are set to 1%, while the Variations are 0% for each.
The project has an FPS of 24 (project and render settings).

This means that 240 Frames are a complete Loop. While we are starting at frame zero, the same frame would be created at 239.
This means the needed loop will be 0-238.

Please note that the Editor View might need a refresh (key A) to show the frame that will be rendered.

Make a test first, render frame zero and 239, then do an A/B comparison.

All the best

P.S.:

As usual, I try to find other ways to get things done.

Here is a solution that might work faster. If it is always better, I will leave that to you.

It needs a specific plug-in, which is available from here, for free:

Thanassis is part of the Maxon-One training team, so you can trust this source.

The example is based on the plug-in.

And a little bit refined:

Enjoy.
