# “Rolling Cube Along a Path” preset and pdf tutorial available now

You can find the files HERE or in the tutorial article.

And this is an example video created with my preset.

# Rolling Cube along a path in C4D using math and Xpresso

A couple of days ago I came across this video of Maxon Training Team (channel that I recommend you follow):

This tutorial shows techniques for rolling a cube along a path using XPresso and the new Nodes system. The result is good and in certain situations it can be fine, but it is not precise, it is an approximation. I tried to look if there was a mathematical solution to the problem but in my short search I found only these other methods of solving the problem:

This is another fast and effective approach that leverages the internal physics of C4D.

Here, on the other hand, a solution is offered to obtain a mathematically precise rolling, but it would probably be difficult, to deny me if I am wrong, to adapt it to make the cube follow a path other than the straight line.

So I thought I’d solve the problem mathematically so that the cube can follow a path along a spline. But first I want to show you a short example video where I used my own preset.

# 3D Tracking and Realmagazine

This is the Realmagazine preset for Cinema 4D used in my first 3D tracking test.

Rendered using Redshift.

# RGB LCD Panel – Free Preset

My RGB LCD Panel preset is here.
It is an XPresso setup that works for standard render in Cinema 4D but it is possible to adapt it to any kind of render engine, I think.

Please note that the pixels in this preset are always squared.
The parameters are the follows: Continue reading

# RGB LED Screen Effect with C4D

Another XPresso setup made to realize this video.
If you are interested to the project file for the RGB LED Screen effect let me know.

# Realbook and Realmagazine in Paul McCartney “Flaming Pie” Collector’s Edition Animation

To announce the upcoming sale of the Paul McCartney–”Flaming Pie” Collector’s Edition, Lorraine Campo at 33 1/3, Inc. created this unboxing animation using C4D R19 with the Realbook and Realmagazine presets and After Effects.

# The Italian Songbook – Realmagazine animation

The Italian Songbook project is a “Cultural Soundscape” conceived and created by Director Antonio (Tonino) Pappano Riccio.
The aim of The Italian Songbook project is to revitalise an older taste of our ancestors to celebrate the eternal and powerful aspects of song, within a context that suits our own modern sentiments. It is your guide and companion as you embrace the beauty of vocal and orchestral art.

It was a pleasure to create an animation for the Antonio Pappano’s project using my Realmagazine preset for Cinema 4D. Click the link below to visit the project page:
