It’s almost the same explosion/rocket-stone-launch video made last month but with little changes in the smoke, great improvements for the landscape and the added SFX.
Using Cinema 4D, Thinking Particles, Volume, content browser + prorender node for the landscape material, Prorender (10 iterations + denoiser).
Using only Cinema 4D:
Volume, Thinking Particles, XPresso, Mograph, Prorender
After a long period of inactivity, I resumed putting hands on C4D, and the first concrete approach came about thanks to this fantastic tutorial (see below). The guys are really good, but unfortunately almost all video tutorials are for Houdini.
